Deferring admission after f1 stamping for same university

Recommended Posts

I got my F1 visa stamped on july 2022 but due to some health issues i would not be able to make for fall 2022.

My university is good to provide updated i20 for spring 2023 and i have informed them my stamping is done.

will there be any concerns raised at port entry since my visa was issued for fall 2022 and i deferred my admission after that to spring 2023  for same university and course?

could you please confirm if my f1 will be still valid when i travel in dec to attend spring 2023.

"If you can no longer attend **** in the semester on your I-20 or DS-2019,  you can defer your admission and your I-20 or DS-2019 (see below) and enter in a future semester. If you were previously issued a visa, you can use this visa for a later date, as long as your visa has not expired."

Always run all questions regarding your F1 through your ISA/DSO in future
