Application Requirements

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) sets forth the requirements for F-1 visas. The F-1 visa is available for students who wish to study at a variety of different types of U.S. schools, including colleges and universities, academic high schools, elementary schools, and language training programs. The school must be approved by the Immigration & Customs Enforcement “Student and Exchange Visitors Program.” The student must be enrolled full-time and must be fluent in English or be enrolled in courses to become fluent.

Applicants must demonstrate that they have the financial means to support themselves and pay for their schooling for the duration of their study program. Applicants must maintain their permanent residence in their home country during their time in the U.S. Students participating in the program must also abide by certain employment restrictions while in the U.S. Once a student has completed their program, they may remain in the U.S. for up to 60 days after completion.

How to Apply for an F-1 Visa

All applicants must complete the Form DS-160, which can be completed online, and pay the required application fee. Applicants must also schedule an interview, which must be completed at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate, and the process varies based upon location. Therefore, it is important that you complete the correct steps based upon the location at which you are applying. Additionally, eligible schools have varying admission requirements for F-1 visa applicants, so it is imperative that applicants ensure that all steps are completed fully and accurately. If you are not clear on the process and would like additional assistance, one of our DC F-1 visa lawyers will be able to guide you through the process.
