F1 renwal for PhD - Previous F1 visa with 221G


Recommended Posts


I am currently a PhD student in Missouri. I came to the United States in Dec 2009, after 2 semesters I shifted to a PhD program. Since I received a 221G form, my visa was only valid till July 2012. I plan to go back to India in June 2013 to get my Visa renewed. My question is:

Will it be problem with the 221 G form that I received the last time? (New I-20 shows completion of study in 2015, Also have full fee waiver and stipend now)

I think I received the 221 G form last time because my dad works with the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), but now he is retired.
