Stamp from consulate instead of student visa?

Jump to last reply

To sum everything up before I begin, on July 7th 2015 I had my visa appointment in Chicago. 2 weeks later, I received an envelope, with JUST my passport. Inside was a stamp, not a sticker with my picture on it, that says:

Visa D FR
JUL 7 2015 Consulate general de France a Chicago


The D was written in with pen and there was no other information in my envelope about when I can arrive, when I have to leave, if I can work etc. My girlfriend received a proper visa, with her picture and dates etc. I've tried emailing and calling consulate in chicago, dc and miami but no one returns your call or emails.

Has anyone seen this stamp before? Does it mean I received the visa?

Class D is the appropriate visa, I just don't know if that actually means denied. And worse, I dont want to travel and be stuck somewhere with a confusing visa.

PLEASE help. The US embassy in Paris will not help either. Let me know if you have any experience with this. Thanks!
