Somone working for Healthcare IT department :
I am currently working for xxx Inc. as Senior Network Engineer. I work for Healthcare client xxxxxx Initiatives (now known as xxxxxx), in location, State, USA. Being an onsite engineer, I am primarily involved in the design, development, and delivery of critical IT operations and large-scale deployments in our HealthCare firm which is providing critical care for alot of covid patients and alot of other HealthCare clients . I provide enterprise network solutions and operational support for all network devices such as routers, switches, firewalls, wireless devices, load balancers etc. for 14 Emergency care hospitals and 70 urgent care clinics in Texas. I also act as an escalation point of contact for the client from a network perspective. I implemented a reliable and secure network connectivity for various business critical applications such as xxxx, xxxxx etc. so that patient vitals efficiently cross over from the bedside monitors over to our servers in our datacenters. Keeping the growing needs of healthcare in view because of the current pandemic – COVID, I continuously review and refine the network architecture to accommodate the business requirements. Ever since the pandemic started, I have also actively worked on setting up the network for COVID testing centers and vaccination hubs.
I have an emergency request due to a medical condition because, my mother, currently residing in India, needs to undergo knee replacement surgery for both her knees. Both my parents are over 65 years old and are living by themselves. My mother has maintained that she would not proceed with the medical procedure without my presence as there is nobody to take care of them during this pandemic.
Given my mother’s health condition, I would need to travel to India for a few weeks and support my parents through these challenging times. I understand the criticality of supporting the network infrastructure in a healthcare environment and would return to resume my responsibilities as soon as possible.
Since the US consulates in India are currently closed until further notice, there is no way for me to schedule any visa appointments. Please consider my situation and approve my emergency appointment request for a visa interview in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon Mexico, so that I can travel to India once the travel restrictions are lifted.
Thanks and Regards,

Somone moving from F2 to F1 – Emergency reason
I am an Indian citizen and a current F-2 visa holder. I recently got an admit into the University of South Dakota (USD) for a Masters in Computer Science Program with a concentration in Artificial Intelligence specialization. My research under this course is focused mainly on the in depth adaptations of Artificial Intelligence within the healthcare industry such as utilization of smart devices for a better disease/symptoms identification. These adaptations will not only help the healthcare industry to identify any new patterns or symptoms but also will increase the efficiency and success rate.
I am currently residing in Arizona with my husband, who is working remotely as a Product Manager in the United States under F-1 OPT status. The University classes begin on the August of 23rd and are in person owing to the high vaccination rate in the country. Currently there is at least 10 months processing time as per the USCIS website for the change of status request from F2 to F1. In addition, amidst the current pandemic circumstances in India, I cannot travel to my home country for my visa processing.
I am highly interested in the education opportunity and I need an F-1 visa to attend the classes at the USD as a full time student. I also need the visa at least 30 days before my classes start to plan our relocation from Arizona to South Dakota efficiently. As such, I am requesting to expedite my visa process and allocate me a visa slot on July 20th, 2021.
Thanks in advance for understanding

Reason 2 : For F1 Visa
Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing this to get an emergency appointment for my student (F1) visa as my summer semester starts in less than a month and I cannot travel back to XXXXX because of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases.
I am currently enrolled in a Master’s program at the University of XXXXX on dependent (H4) visa. I had to start my program on H4 visa because of COVID-19 outbreak, there was no window of opportunity for me to travel back to XXXXX and get F1 visa. Now, as my summer semester starts on XXXXX-XX-2021 and it has become very urgent for me to start this semester on F1 visa.
I have to complete two semesters on my F1 visa to be eligible for OPT and I only have two semesters left in my program. I invested a lot of time, money and effort to get into the university but if I am unable to get my F1 visa on time, I will not have OPT and there will be no opportunity for me to gain relevant job training, seriously impacting my future career prospects.
I was planning on going back to XXXXX for my F1 visa interview but given the recent surge in the COVID-19 cases in India, most of the cities are getting locked down with a curfew and everything looks very uncertain at this time. Also, I don’t want to leave my wife alone here in the US in a stressful situation when there’s a chance that I might get stuck in XXXXX because of international travel restrictions given the really high number of cases in India.
Please consider my request for an emergency appointment any time before XXXXX-XX-2021 so that I can start my school on time.
Reason 3 : For H4 to F1 Visa
Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing this to get an emergency appointment for my student (F1) visa. My college’s semester starts in less than a month, and I cannot travel back to my home country as I had originally planned because of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases which has resulted in travel restrictions.
I am currently enrolled in a Master’s program at the University of XXXXXXX on a dependent (H4) visa. I had to start my program on an H4 visa because there was no window of opportunity for me to travel back to my home country and get my F1 visa due to the Covid pandemic. Now, since my summer semester starts on 17th May, 2021 it has become very urgent for me to get my visa stamped so that I can attend college at the start of the semester on F1 status. Additionally, I have to complete two semesters on my F1 visa to be eligible for Curricular Practical Training/OPT and I only have two semesters left in my program. I have invested a lot of time, money and effort to get into this university and if I am unable to get my F1 visa on time I will not have the opportunity to gain invaluable relevant training during my Curricular Practical Training/OPT, seriously impacting my future career prospects.
I was planning on going back to my home country for my F1 visa interview but given the recent surge in the COVID-19 cases, most of the cities are in lock-down with a strict curfew in place. I also don’t want to leave my husband alone here in the US in these stressful times where there’s a chance that I might be stuck because of international travel restrictions given the massive number of cases in India.
In light of the above, I would be really grateful if you would consider my request for an emergency appointment any time before 17th May, 2021. So that I can safely continue with my educational endeavors.
Reason 4 : For F1 Visa (Bachelors in Pharmacy/ Masters in Business Analytics)
Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing this to get an emergency appointment for my student (F1) visa. The year 2020 has created unprecedented challenges for health care and the world beyond. The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused a global crisis, as people worldwide were forced to adapt to the new realities brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The current situation has affected various industries in different ways, benefiting some and disrupting, or even sidelining, others.
In a short time, COVID-19 has increased our dependency on technology and companies are actively investigating this digital transformation. In developing digital strategies, the focus must be on increasing efficiency while minimizing risk. Since, I have studied under graduation in pharmacy I have decided to complete my masters and will settle in healthcare industry. Pharmaceutical companies have also considered digitalization as an opportunity to improve their business models. It provides a new potential stakeholder journey that enables them to communicate directly with clients. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many pharmaceutical companies have strengthened their efforts by offering the medication to the various countries and patients via online orders, healthcare marketing, remote monitoring of clinical data.
My college’s semester starts in less than a month, and I cannot travel back to my home country as I had originally planned because of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases which has resulted in travel restrictions. I am currently enrolled in Master of Science in Business Analytics at the Trine University, Detroit on a dependent (H4) visa. I had to start my program on a H4 visa because there was no window of opportunity for me to travel back to my home country and get my F1 visa due to the Covid pandemic. Now, since my summer semester starts on 7th June 2021 and my orientation will be held on 19th May 2021, it has become very urgent for me to get my visa stamped so that I can attend college at the start of the semester on F1 status.
My classes are ongoing and summer classes are going to commence from 7th June 2021. I would like to get my VISA stamping before my classes. Due to COVID-19 risk, quarantine rules, COVID test requirement, time to travel, availability of flights and availability of appointment dates, I can’t travel to my home country India. I have only a few days left for my classes to start for summer semester. I tried for regular appointments many times, but I am unable to schedule regular appointments before my summer classes.
In light of the above, it would be really grateful if you consider my request for an emergency appointment any time before 14th May 2021. So that I can safely continue with my educational endeavors.
