I am a foreign non-EU student studying for a PhD in the UK. I have a UK Tier 4 student visa which lasts until Jan 2018. I need to travel to the US in December 2017, and will require a US visa. I plan to apply for a US visa in the UK. After the trip to the US, my UK visa will be valid for just one more month.
My question: Does the fact that my UK visa will be valid for only one more month (after the trip to the US) affect the result of the US visa application?
According to the US Customs and Border Protection (see here, and the PDF file therein),
Visitors traveling to the United States are required to be in possession of passports that are valid for six months beyond the period of their intended stay in the United State. Citizens of the countries listed below are exempt the six-month rule and need only have a passport valid for their intended period of stay.
My passport actually is not valid for six months beyond my stay in the US. But fortunately, my country is in the list. The question is whether there is this kind of restriction to the visa of the country in which I am a resident. Thanks.
