Question Description
I would like to ask you some questions and would be very happy if you answer my questions.

If I get a full admission in any college in New York, USA that doesnít require any TOEFL score, what do you think will my possibility to obtain a visa be? Actually, my brother lives in New York, and he will be helping me to get a admission there and send me admission letters with other documents. Similarly, my financial documents will be very strong because my sponsor will be from New York.
Answer

Good sponsorship isnít the only factor that plays role in a visa issuance. To be honest, students, who have sponsors from inside the US, have lower chance to obtain a visa than those who have a sponsor in their home country. This is because, while issuing a visa, consular officers are concerned about whether the applicant will return to his/her home country after the completion of the course or not. Since the students who have sponsors in the US have quite a lower chance to return back home after completion of their studies in the US, the chance for visa issuance may be a little low for them.

The main factors that the Consular Officers look at are: the academic and financial abilities of the student to successfully complete the course in the US, and his/her ties with the home country. If you can satisfy the consular officers very well in these factors, itís quite certain that youíll be issued a visa.
