I have submitted a DS-160 form and I'm now applying for appointment. I am on the payment page and I'm about to pay the $160 fee. A box on the left side of the page says "First Available Appointment Is Monday January 22, 2018."
However, I need to get to the US before January 22, and I have document evidence to prove this (I'm applying for an F1 visa and college term begins January 23rd). I am certain that an urgent appointment will be needed. Can I appeal/ask for an appointment before this January 22 date?
Can you please tell me the procedure for emergency/urgent appointment process?
