Studying in the U.S. with a student visa
People who hope to enter the United States may consider applying for student visa if they intend to enroll in an institute of learning while living in the country. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USIS) may either grant F-1 or M-1 visas to individuals who fulfill the following requirements:
- The applicant must be enrolled full-time in a school or university approved by the USIS
- The applicant must either be proficient in the English language or in the process of becoming a fluent English speaker
- The applicant should have sufficient finances to support his or her entire study in the U.S.
- The applicant should have a residence outside the U.S. that he or she will not give up
In some situations, individuals who have been granted student visas may secure employment under some restrictions and conditions.
Entering the U.S. with student visas can be difficult and the process may not guarantee permanent residency.
