Immigration

Applying for a Student VISA in the USA

If you want to study full time in a specific country such as the United States, Australia or the UK, you’ll need a student visa. Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States or any of the countries mentioned above must first obtain a visa, either a non immigrant visa for temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Let our step-by-step breakdown of the US visa application procedure guide you through the process.

WHICH VISA DO I NEED?
The type of visa you will need to study in the US will depend on the nature of your study programme. The application process for each visa type is the same, however in some cases you might be required to produce additional documents or information about your study programme depending on your specific circumstances. Your host institution will inform you how to proceed if this is the case.

When you complete your study programme, you are allowed a 60-day grace period in which you may leave the US, apply to change your visa status or request a transfer into another academic programme.

  • F-1: Most international students will require an F-1 visa. This visa is for international students who have been accepted into a full-time academic degree programme at an accredited US College or University, i.e. Undergraduate, Postgraduate or Doctorate study. Exchange students whose full-time study load is more than 18 hours a week will also need an F-1 visa.
  • M-1:This visa is for students completing a non-academic or Vocational study programme at a US College or University.
  • J-1: A J-1 visa is for students who are enrolled in an educational exchange programme that is a credited part of their home study programme. Students in these programmes remain enrolled at their home university whilst they study in the US, and return home to complete or receive their qualification after the fixed term in their exchange agreement is finished.

How To Apply For USA Student Visa
There are several steps to apply for a visa. The order of these steps and how you complete them may vary by U.S. Embassy or Consulate. So the best approach is to consult the instructions on the embassy or consulate website to see steps to follow. Click Here to Check it Out
