A student visa is a document that allows citizens of other countries to
travel to the U.S. and legally stay there for a period of time while pursuing
academic achievements. For example, you could obtain a student visa if
you wish to attend an ESL school in New York City. The
ESL school can help you master your English skills, which you can then use to apply
to a U.S. university or college.
The student visa, which is in the visa category “F,” will allow
you to study at a private elementary school, conservatory, seminary, high
school, and university or college. It also allows you to attend a language
training program or other academic institution. Before you can obtain
a student visa, you must apply to the ESL school and be accepted for admittance.
Not every school in the U.S. is approved to accept international students.
The school you apply to must be approved by the Student and Exchange Visitor
Program (SEVP), which is part of the National Security Investigations
Division. You can search for approved schools on the website of the U.S.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement or you can contact the ESL school
directly to ask about SEVP approval.
Once you’ve identified the English school you wish to attend, you
must apply for admission before you can
apply for your student visa. Once you’ve been accepted for admission, the school will send you
a Form I-20, which you’ll use to apply for a visa. Then, you must
complete your student visa application form. If you complete the form
online, you can also upload your photo at this time.
After submitting your application for a student visa, you’ll need
to schedule a visa interview at your nearest U.S. consulate or embassy.
While you wait for your interview, you must pay the non-refundable visa
application fee and compile the required documentation. After your interview,
you’ll be informed if your visa is approved, denied, or requires
