Mississippi Visas

If you want to come to Mississippi to study, travel, or live, you need a visa. A visa is placed in your passport and will allow you to go to a U.S. place of entry. There, you can ask for consent to enter the country. A visa does not mean that you will definitely be given consent. However, having already been checked by a U.S. Embassy or Consulate official is a good start.

How to Apply for a Visa 

The steps that you need to take to apply for a visa in your country will depend on the type of visa you need. If you want a student visa, you will need to: 

  • Fill out form DS-160 for a non-immigrant visa online.
  • Upload a photo that meets the rules.
  • Gather the necessary paperwork.
  • Attend an interview.

You need to follow the rules closely. Errors can be costly. You should not book your travel until you have your visa. Or you may risk losing the money you spend on your tickets.

What Could Delay Your Visa Application?

There are a number of things that could delay the process. This can be vexing, especially if you need to be at college by a certain date. Reasons for delays, or denial, could include:

  • Missing or incomplete documents
  • Background checks
  • Insufficient funds

If you need advice, an attorney will be able to talk you through what to do. He or she will also be able to help you later if you want to extend your visa.
