New SEVIS ID and VISA Interview


Recommended Posts

I came to usa during fall-2016 and completed my masters in may-2018. I have then started my phd. My chance of obtaining opt was denied after masters as I transferred to phd. Now, I am thinking of withdrawing from my phd in Jan-2020. I guess my sevis will be terminated immediately after that as I wont be having any status. I plan on going back home in January. But, my F1 visa is valid till Jun-2021 (I got it for my masters in 2016).

I am now planning on applying for fall-2020 for masters at other universities. So, if I get admit from those universities will I get them on new sevis id or the same old one. And do I need to take the visa interview again with my new sevis id (if I get one)? If I get a new sevis id, will I be eligible for opt this time after masters?

Please let me know.
