When an individual wishes to temporarily come to the United States to further their education, they will have to obtain a student visa. With that said, it is important to gather information regarding the different types of visas that are available for students. An F visa exists for students to attend the following education sources:
- Private elementary school
- High School
- Seminary school
The other type of student visa that can be obtained is an M visa. This is available for students who wish to attend a vocational school or another type of institution that is nonacademic in nature. Regardless of which visa one decides fits them best, they will have to apply for it through a Form I-20. Once the application is submitted, the individual will have to attend an interview as long as they are between the ages of 13 and 80.
All applicants must bring certain documentation to their interview, including a passport that is valid at least 6 months after the period of stay, a nonimmigrant visa application, an application fee receipt, a Form I-20, a certificate of eligibility, a photo, school transcripts, diplomas, degrees, and certificates, if applicable.
