STUDENT VISA(F1/M1) TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - PROCESS, PROCEDURE & REQUIREMENTS

WHAT IS AN F1 VISA?

The F-1 Visa (Academic Student) allows you to enter the United States as a full-time student at an accredited college, university, seminary, conservatory, academic high school, elementary school, or other academic institution or in a language training program.

 

WHAT IS AN M1 VISA?

An M1 visa is a non-immigrant visa for nonacademic or vocational studies. The visa is issued by the US Department of State after you have been accepted to study at a community or junior college, post-secondary vocational school, or post-secondary business school, with at least 12 semester or quarter hours.

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM ELIGIBLE FOR A F1 VISA ?

To be eligible for a F-1 visa you must first be enrolled in an approved school in the United States as listed in SEVP (Student and Exchange Visitor Program). If your university application is completed successfully, you will be registered in SEVIS (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System). It’s important to receive the I-20 form from SEVIS, or you cannot apply for this visa.

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM ELIGIBLE FOR A M1 VISA ?

 

You can apply for this study visa if you are interested in vocational studies that include cooking, technical courses, flight training, cosmetology, and similar fields. Even for this visa, you also need to be enrolled at an eligible institution in SEVP, so you can be registered in SEVIS and get your I-20 form.
