    You have to attend F1 Visa Interview at US consulate. To appear for a visa interview, first you need to book a visa date. On that day you need to go to consulate for the interview with all the admission letters, I20, test scores, academic certificates and financial documentation.

    CPT is the work permit that you get during your education in USA. After your Education you will get OPT work permit to work for any employer in USA.
