Who Is the F-1 Visa For Specifically?

This particular visa is only for academic students, not for those wishing to learn a vocation in the U.S. Those seeking to attend a vocational school would need to apply for an M-1 visa.

You may not need an F-1 visa to pursue an education, if one of the following applies to you:

  • If you are already here on a tourist B-2 visa or visa waiver program, you can take classes as long as it is for less than 18 hours a week.
  • If you have a spouse or parent who is already in the U.S. with an A, E, G, H, J, L, or NATO visa, or if you are working with an H status, you are allowed to go to school as long as it does not mess with your nonimmigrant status or visa.

How Do You Pursue an F-1 Visa?

First of all, you need to find a school in the U.S. that you would like to attend and apply for admission. Then you will need to speak to the designated school official (DSO) after you have been accepted. This individual will be the government-approved individual that is recognized by the USCIS as the primary person to deal with as a foreign student.

They will be able to help you with your schooling and any questions you may have regarding your F-1 visa. It is also essential that you have an Orange County student visa lawyer walk you through the steps of the actual application process.
