Former Consular Officers helping international students succeed at their visa interview

We work with U.S. universities to help their international succeed at their F-1, J-1, and M-1 visa interviews. On average, 1 in 3 international students will face problems at their U.S. visa interview, and 1 in 5 will be denied, often because they don’t know how to prepare.

When we were Consular Officers, after denying visas to so many students because they didn’t understand how to convey their situations to the Visa Officer in a concise, engaging way, we realized that international students (and their universities) need help!

With Argo, international students can now meet one-on-one with former Consular Officers online to learn how to advocate for themselves at a 5 minute visa interview, effectively answer questions about their school, funding, sponsors, and gain the confidence needed to put their best food forward at their visa interview.

We understand that even one student who gets denied their student visa means hundreds of thousands of lost tuition dollars for the university.  Now universities can offer this support to international students to ensure they don’t lose any admits to the U.S. visa process.

How to help your international students

Now there is a way that you can make sure your international students have the best chance for success at their U.S. visa interview. If you represent a U.S. university who welcomes international students, the best thing you can do for those students is to give them an Argo consultation so they can be prepared for their visa interview.

How we work with schools, universities, and DSOs

30 or 60-minute one-on-one videoconference consultations with an ex-Visa Officer to help your international students. Your students will understand exactly what to expect at the visa interview, how to advocate for themselves in just a few minutes, along with mock interviews with an ex-Visa Officer followed by feedback and suggestions.
Consultations for special circumstances like prior refusals, OPT issues, transition to H-1B, complicated cases, third country nationals, and visa revocations.
Special Argo partnership where your school can provide large discounts on Argo consultations for your students and receive a webinar with an ex-Visa Officer where your students can ask questions live during Q&A.

How do your students book an Argo consultation?

If you are not an Argo partner yet, but have a student who could benefit from an Argo consultation, they can sign up here and answer the simple prompts. They should also complete the Visa Questionnaire in its entirety so the ex-Visa Officer can be prepared for the consultation.
