M-1 Visa Overview

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) governs M-1 visas. M-1 visas are a type of student visa specifically for those wishing to study at technical or vocational schools. The school must be approved by Immigration & Customs Enforcement’s (ICE’s) “Student and Exchange Visitors Program.” Students wishing to participate must be enrolled full-time and must be proficient in English or be enrolled in studies to become proficient. Students must also be able to prove that they have the finances necessary to fund their schooling and pay for their living expenses during the course of the program.

How to Apply for an M-1 Visa in DC

Prior to applying for the M-1 visa, the student must apply and be admitted to an approved vocational or technical school. Schools have varying admission requirements for M-1 visa students, so it is important to submit all the necessary information to your school of choice when you apply.

Once the student has been admitted to an approved U.S. technical or vocational school, the student must apply for the M-1 visa at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. This includes paying the application fee, completing the Form DC-160, completing the form DC-157 (only for males age 16-45), presenting a valid passport, and providing recent photographs.
