The F1 and Other Visa Types

Postby yoshewale » Fri, 18 Oct 2013 02:01:19 -0500

If you are planning to travel to the USA as a non-immigrant, you will need to get a visa. There are many types of visas that you may look into. Each individual visa type is specific to the needs of a certain group of people, and the type you get will depend on the reason you will be temporarily living in the USA. One of the most popular visa types is an F1 visa for students wishing to study temporarily in the United States.

F1
The type of study you plan to participate in will determine whether you need an F1 or an M1 visa. The F1 visa will be needed if you plan to attend a conservatory, seminary, a private elementary school, high school, a university, or a college. In addition, language training programs and other academic institutions will require the F1 visa. Vocational and other nonacademic institutions will require the M1. Speak to someone at the embassy to determine if the F1 is right for your educational endeavors.

Visitor B
If you are a student planning to participate in just a short recreational course, which is not going to go towards a degree, a Visitor B visa is sufficient. If you plan to use the course to go towards a degree and only need to be in the USA for a short period of time, you will need to get an F1 visa.

Exchange Visitor J1
For visitors to the USA who are approved to participate in a student exchange program, an Exchange Visitor J1 is a sufficient visa. It can be used for students who plan to go to a university or college, a secondary school, or even a researcher. In addition, a teacher or a trainee can also use this type of visa. Furthering your education in the USA could be a huge asset to you as you look for a career after schooling. If you are planning to become an international student, you will need to get your visa in order long before you travel. Speak to someone at the embassy to understand which visa is right for the type of education you plan to pursue.

I agree with this one because my friends are enjoying this kind of VISA. I will have to take an experience with this one.
