USA Student Visa Requirements (America)


You need to apply for a student visa to the US Embassy to enter the USA as a student. Here is the information which will give you the broader idea of the whole process.

There are mainly two kinds of student visas:

F-1 Visa (Student Visa): This is for the full-time students who got admission in any academic program. The students had to complete their studies on the expiry date written on the I-20 form at any cost.

J-1 Visa (Exchange Visitor Visa): This is for the students who need practical training which is not available in their country. The student had to return to his/her country for a minimum duration of 2 years after completing the studies. The J-1 visa forces the student to return to their home country for a minimum of two years after the end of their studies in the US.

Visa Application Procedure

The applicant needs to apply to the consular section in the American Embassy on any working day between 8:30 to 10:00 AM.

Documents required:

• A Passport size photograph
• Duly signed Form I-20 by the applicant.
• Fees of Visa to be paid by Bank Draft in Indian Rupees
• Non-immigrant Visa Application (Form 156) from the Consular section.
• Official Passport
• Proof of financial capability covering costs of the education and maintenance.

When to apply

The applicant can’t apply for a student Visa before 90 days of registration date stated on FORM I-20. After this time duration the application can be submitted. Generally the visa will be given inside few hours or days after submitting the application and if the application is rejected, you can write to the Consular Officer by sending him a "written denial decision." The officer will give you the official reasons for that.
