But again, there is no official rules as such, all they want is current. Hello kumar, My elder brother is on H1 visa and studying in the USA since 2 years and is graduating this December so he wants to submit embassy letter request form to his university so can you please tell me before how many months from the convocation can he submit the letter request form to his university? You can apply for visa stamping up to 3 months before your travel date. Once your Brother has the convocation letter ready, you are good to go. The process is same as described above.

So, choose accordingly depending on who is paying for the trip. Thank you, Kumar, for the quick revert. I am applying B2 visa for my mother, due to some reasons i cannot apply for my father.
