F-1 Student Visa

Why You Need an Attorney

An F-1 visa is often referred to as a "student visa" because it allows the individual in possession to come to the United States for the purpose of attending an accredited school full-time.

Eligibility Qualifications for Student Visas

Like all other visas, there are several requirements that you must meet in order to be eligible for an F-1 visa, and you need to be fully aware of these before applying. First, you need to be fully aware that this kind of visa is for the purpose of traveling to the United States to attend a school or other educational institute, full-time, and to return home after your visa has expired.

In order to qualify for the visa, you will need to fulfill all of the following requirements:

  1. You need to be accepted by a U.S. government-approved school
  2. You must demonstrate that you have the funds available to complete your full-time study without working
  3. You must show that you are attending school with an objective, such as a diploma or certificate
  4. You will be required to demonstrate that you are fluent enough in English to understand the coursework (some schools may offer special tutoring to help you study in English)
  5. You must prove that you intend to return to your country at the conclusion of your study

After you have met these requirements, your Orange County immigration lawyer will work with you to gather the necessary documentation for your interview. With the right attorney on your side, you can rest assured that all elements of your application are addressed, and that you are fully prepared.
