Your Immigration Questions Answered by VisaPro.

Here, you will find detailed answers to many of most common immigration questions.

20. How do I request for reinstatement of status?
  
 To apply for reinstatement you must write a letter to the USCIS explaining the reasons why you violated status and why you should be reinstated. Indicate the hardships that will result: should USCIS fail to reinstate you, and/or that your violation occurred because of circumstances beyond your control.
  
 Note: If you are denied reinstatement, you have 30 days in which to leave the U.S. If you receive a denial, contact us to see if you may change status to other nonimmigrant category.

21. What are the requirements for a transfer to another school?
   
  For transferring to another school, you must:
  
 
    Be a full-time student, and you intend to be a full-time student at the new school
    Should prove that you have the financial resources required for your education
    Not change your educational objective

22. Can our school waive the tuition requirement for a deserving F-1 foreign high school student?
  
  No, the law does not allow a foreign student in F-1 status to attend public secondary school without paying tuition. The student must pay the full, unsubsidized per capita (for each student) cost of education in all cases.

23. Do the new provisions affect all foreign students?
  
  No, the provisions only affect students in F-1 status, or applicants for F-1 visas, who plan to attend public schools or publicly funded adult education programs. These provisions do not affect J-1 exchange students, and students whose parents are diplomats, researchers or foreign workers.
