L2 to F1 Consular processing in Canada


New Member

I am on an L2 visa in the US and pursuing my Master's which I started in Jan 2020. I am planning to convert my visa status from L2 to F1. Due to the current travel ban from my Home country, India, I am planning to travel to Canada for F1 stamping as I have a Canada PR. I have the below queries:

1. If I go to Canada for an F-1 visa stamping/interview, will it be considered as a third country for me or home?
2. If my F1 visa application gets denied due to any reason, will it impact my current visa status(L2)?
