Visa requirements for the USA.
Applying for visas is often seen as complicated, but JVC Educationís trained counsellors are experts in guiding students through the application process.
There are three main visa types that students can opt for to study in a US university. These are as follows:-
STEP 1:-F-1 Student Visa: Academic Study - F-1 is the most common type of student visa issued to international students who wish to undertake academic studies in the USA. With an F1 visa, international students can undertake part-time, on-campus employment (20 hours per week while regular semester studies and 40 hours per week during vacations). In addition to this, students can work on optional practical training (OPT) for up to one year once they have completed their academic study.
STEP 2:-J-1 Student Visa: Exchange Visitor Visa - A J-1 Student Visa is issued to students who wish to undertake practical training which is not available in their native nation to complete their academic program. A J-1 student status gives similar employment options as that given to the F-1 visa, with same restrictions, subject to a permission granted by the exchange visitor program sponsor.
STEP 2:-M-1 Student Visa: Non-Academic Study - M-1 Student Visa is issued to those who wish to attend a non-academic or vocational school in the USA. With a M-1 visa, students cannot take up work during the course of their study period.
Steps for applying for a USA student visa
The visa application process starts with the receipt of an I-20. The I-20 confirms a studentís acceptance and enrolment at a university or other educational institution.
