Miss Lucy would like to study as an F-1 student at a prestigious university in Texas and join the program in next fall semester.

After Miss Lucy retained us to help her to obtain an F-1 visa through Third Country Visa processing, our attorney guided her to gather all required documents, discussed with Miss Lucy on her concern, and prepared her for the interview. On June 26, 2002, Mr. Stephen Santucci accompanied Miss Lucy to travel to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and proved to the visa officer that Miss Lucy's application for F-1 visa is a bona fide application. The Visa Officer issued an F-1 visa to Miss Lucy. Upon returning the U.S. with the F-1 visa, Miss Lucy obtained her F-1 status.
