Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

What you need to know when seekng a student visa

Are you interested in visiting the United States to study? Often, people hoping to apply for student visas are unsure of the process to follow. If you have concerns about making a poor decision, it could lead to the denial of your application.

The United States welcomes foreigners who are interested in visiting the United States to study. While you may be interested in a student visa, known formally as an F-1 Visa, there are things you must do first to put yourself in a position to succeed.

Here are the four basic steps you can follow to apply:

  • Pay the visa application fee (you can’t do anything until this step is complete)
  • Fill out the Nonimmigrant Visa Electronic Application form online
  • Schedule your appointment online using your passport number, payment receipt number and bar code from your Nonimmigrant Visa Electronic Application confirmation page
  • Visit the specified U.S. Embassy at the appropriate time and date for your interview

While your interview is extremely important, it’s essential that you don’t stress out too much. If you let your anxiety get the better of you, there’s a chance that it could harm your ability to optimally perform.

Make sure you take all the necessary documents with you, including the following:

  • Documentation outlining your financial and personal life in your home country
  • Copies of bank statements
  • Birth certificate
  • Academic documents that show your preparation to further your education, such as standardized test scores, public examination certificates, and school transcripts

Along with the above, there’s something you never want to do — present false documents. This error is one of the biggest you can make. Not only will doing this lead to a denial right now, it could result in permanent ineligibility for a student visa.

It may not be a simple process to obtain a student visa, but if you’re interested in studying in the United States as a foreigner, you need to understand the process. Once you have a clear idea of what you should and shouldn’t be doing, you can follow the system down to every last detail.
