3 Things You Need to Know About Student Visas

Students that wish to study abroad in the United States are required to meet certain eligibility standards. Besides meeting these requirements, the application process itself is complicated and can be especially challenging for non-native English speakers.

If you are a student interested in U.S. study abroad programs, contact an Austin immigration attorney from the Law Offices of Williams Jang, PLLC, at 512-323-2333. We can help you file your application and get the visa you need to study abroad.

Three Types of Student Visas

There are many different types of student visas, each with their unique requirements. The majority of applicants will be asked to prove that they are proficient in English, enrolled in a full-time American educational program, and have a permanent residency in their home country.

Three of the major types of student visas include:

  • F-1 Visas – intended for students that will attend a public high school, private school, English language school, or post-secondary institution.
  • M-1 Visas – for students that will be attending a SEVP-certified technical or vocational academic program.
  • J-1 Visas – reserved for students that are participating in an Exchange Visitor Program.

Consulting with an experienced attorney is the best way to ensure that your application process goes smoothly. It may help you get your visa in a timely manner and avoid problems with your study abroad program.
