There are a wide variety of options available to students who wish to pursue study in the United States. The first step to any student visa is always applying to & being accepted to a Student and Exchange Visitor Program school (SEVP). Once you have checked this off your list, it is time to begin the process of obtaining your visa. The type of visa for which you apply is highly dependent on the nature of your coursework. The different types of student visas available include:
F-1 student visas – These visas are reserved for students pursuing studies at universities, high schools, seminaries, conservatories, private elementary schools, and other academic institutions.
M-1 visas – These visas are generally issued to students who are attending vocational schools or participating in other sorts of non-academic training.
Visitor (B) visas – These visas are appropriate for students enrolling in short-term or recreational programs, specifically non-degree, non-certification courses.
J-1 visa – These visas can be issued for people participating in work or study-based exchange programs. These include au pair programs, internship programs, teaching exchange programs, or professor/research exchange programs.
J-2 visas – These visas are reserved for any dependents, spouses, and/or children of J-1 visitors.
The process of obtaining a student visa can be lengthy. It usually involves various application forms, documentation related to education & finances, and an interview. We can help you navigate this process and also assist you in the complex process of transferring your student visa to an H-1, E-1, E-2, or O-2 visa should you wish to remain in the country following completion of your studies.
