Immigration & Visa in The United States
Advice on Immigration & Visa in The United States, where you can make sure you get the right documents to make a successful application to your ideal university.
Before travelling to study a degree in the USA you will need to apply for a non-immigrant visa.
The most common kind of student visa is the F-1 visa, which entitles the holder to study at any US accredited college or university.
To apply for a student visa, you will need to fill out an application form and upload a photo of yourself with it. You’ll also need to schedule a visa interview with your country’s US Embassy or Consulate. All three of these elements are explained in further detail on the US Embassy website. You’ll need to pay fees for both the application and the interview.
In the interview, you’ll need to bring your passport, nonimmigrant visa application confirmation page, application fee payment receipt, photo, and F-1 form.
New students can have their visas issued up to 120 days prior to starting their studies, but they cannot enter the US with more than 30 days to go before the course starts.
