6. When you go to the U. S. Consulate take four documents with you:
- Your PASSPORT
- Your letter of acceptance from Hawaiian Mission Academy.
- The I-20 federal form issued by Hawaiian Mission Academy.
- Receipt or proof that you have filed the SEVIS I-901 fee.
7. At the U.S. Consulate’s office you will receive a BOOKING Appointment number with a specific date and time to interview with U. S. officials and request your Student VISA approval.
8. Immediately FAX or notify the school of:
- Date and Time of appointment
- Booking Appointment No.
9. At the appointment date and time set by the U.S. Consulate, the student should present themselves for the interview at least 30 minutes early.
10. Upon receipt of the F-1 Student VISA, immediately notify Hawaiian Mission Academy so that we can be informed of the expected date of arrival.
11. If the Student VISA is denied, RE-Apply and request another interview. Often the U. S. Government wants to know the seriousness, positive intent, and determination of the student and parents and their interest to pursue their education. Keep the Registrar of Hawaiian Mission Academy informed of this second interview date and time, as well as, the outcome of your interview with the U. S. Consulate
12. However, if the student is denied and students abandon their efforts to apply for the F-1 Student VISA, then they must submit proof of denial of Student VISA to Hawaiian Mission Academy. Hawaiian Mission Academy will refund all but $250 of the parents’ funds. The funds will be wired to the parents’ financial institution.
