How to extend US F1 visa (student visa)?
Hi, I’m currently living in US on F1 visa (student on OPT) however, I do not work at the moment. My visa expired in about 1 1/2 months and I need to get in extended because I haven’t got the chace to travel or see my relatives who are living in this country. I need to get my visa extended but I don’t know how. Can anyone please help me??? thanks.
