填写签证表并签字(请务必仔细阅读说明), 见如下面翻译好的表格.

One US passport size photo on a white background with no glasses and no hat and please do not smile.

一张美国护照(或签证)大小照片, 美国签证照片尺寸要求是近半年照白底照片一张及电子版,尺寸为 `51mmX51mm` 或 2英寸X2英寸. 我的照片是自己照的, 选了个白墙. 然后利用如下网站美国签证照片网上在线制作制作照片, 生成6联打印版本. 可以上传到CVS或者Walgreen等便利店打印成纸版照片, 只要3毛钱, 非常划算.

A U.S. permanent residence card (“green card”) (+ ONE PHOTOCOPY) or a valid US visa(+ ONE PHOTOCOPY) or an Advance Parole document (+ ONE PHOTOCOPY)

Students/interns, in addition to a valid US visa will also need a valid I-20 (+ ONE PHOTOCOPY) or DS2019 (+ ONE PHOTOCOPY)
Please note that we do NOT accept applications from B1/B2 visa holders. These visa holders must apply in their country of residence.

美国签证 (加一份复印件) + `I-20` 原件 (加一份复印件) ( `I-20` 可能需要 OIA 的 `travel signature`).

If the country of final destination is not the applicant’s country of citizenship, please submit a valid visa, a resident permit, a work permit or any other document (+ ONE PHOTOCOPY) showing that the applicant is allowed to enter or reside in such country

我回美国, 这个不用管, 有美签了.

Proof of socio-professional status :

  • letter of employment in the U.S confirming your salary, hire date, position and dates of vacation (business registration if self employed)
  • and your last 3 paystubs (unless downloaded, please bring a photocopy)
  • or letter from your school or university confirming your enrollment status, attendance and expected graduation date
  • For a business trip: please present a letter from your employer or University regarding the purpose of your trip and an official invitation from your hosting company in France

我找了系里开了个证明, 也找了 OIA 开了证明 (要标明状态良好和预计毕业日). `last 3 paystubs` 可以标记在最近的三份银行账单上.

Proof of financial means :

  • your last 3 bank statements (unless downloaded, please bring a photocopy) Your bank statements must show your name and address.
  • If you are self employed, you must bring your tax return from the previous year or proof of previous economic activity and income for last year
  • If you are retired : you must provide your pension benefits letter or a letter of previous employer

在网上下载三分最近的银行账单 (现在大多数都可以下载, 如果没有的话就去银行要吧), 账单上必须有自己的名字和地址.

Proof of travel arrangements : flight (roundtrip) travel reservations or other proof of intended transportation and full itinerary (if several Schengen States will be visited OR if the trip covers several Schengen States and non-Schengen countries). We recommend you do not purchase your airline ticket until you get your visa.

机票预订 (推荐使用 StudentUniverse, 一般便宜不少, 记得看看有没有 Coupon) 和详细行程.

Proof of travel medical insurance showing valid worldwide coverage for at least $50,000 for accident/sickness emergencies and at least $50,000 for repatriation/evacuation with NO deductible on any of the coverage. The following are some suggested companies : 7 Corners, Roam Right, AXA, TravelGuard, Travelex, HCC

旅行医疗保险: 我直接按照推荐选的 `7 Corners`, 不贵. 记得选择 `outside U.S.`, 否则要贵 10 刀左右.

Proof of accomodation :

  • Confirmed hotel reservations for your entire stay in the Schengen states
  • or, if you are staying with friends or family, original of “Attestation d’Accueil” that your host has to request at the City Hall (Mairie) in France

预定好行程内每一天的 Hotel, 不能遗漏. 个人推荐到 Booking 或者 Priceline 找一些 Free cancellation 的.

A self-addressed prepaid USPS EXPRESS MAIL or PRIORITY MAIL with a tracking # envelope – NO FEDEX / UPS / AIRBORNE EXPRESS accepted. You may use one envelope per family if you buy `flat rate`

Please do NOT stick the mailing label on the envelope and fill it out as follows :

我买的是这个. 切记只能用 USPS 并且用邮票的方式, 如果贴了 mailing label 那么必须当天寄出, 所以不能贴 mailing label. From 填写大使馆的地址, to 填写家庭地址. 另外请务必记住信封的 `tracking number`, 这样比较放心, 可以自己跟踪快递. 因为这边大使馆是不会给你任何消息的, 我当时就是忘记记下 `tracking number`, 导致比较慌. 幸好一切都很顺利, 护照回来的很快.

面签

法国驻芝加哥大使馆离千禧公园很近, 如果到早了还可以去附近玩玩. 大使馆所在大楼入口附近有 CVS, 如果没带照片或者照片不合格, 可以到这里来补. 大厅里也有银行, 忘记带 `cash` 了也可以去取. 进入大厅后, 到前台和工作人员说我是来签证的. 工作人员会给你两个牌牌, 一个刷电梯入口的(貌似是绿色的, 有条形码的), 另一个忘记了, 到了大使馆后把两个牌牌上交就好.

20170507145051
基本上 officer 也没怎么和我说话, 就一直在检查文件. 因为我资料准备地比较齐全, 所以检查完毕之后就直接照相和按指纹, 一切都搞定 OK 了. 不算等待的时间, 总共 6 分钟不到. 有好几个人忘记文件或者忘记带钱, 照片不合格的都跑出去补了.

我当时是星期二过去面签的, 然后星期六下午就收到护照了. 我自己申请的只有 18 天并且是 `single entry`. 最终给了我 90 天和 `mult entries`.
