This is the most common type of student visa. If you wish to engage in academic studies in the United States at an approved school, such as an accredited U.S. college or university, private secondary school, or approved English language program then you need an F-1 visa.
A F1 Visa is granted to international students who want to attend English language programs or academic programs in the colleges or universities of the US. Students under this visa must maintain a minimum course load towards full USA-States-Maptime student status. Students who want to obtain this visa need to apply to schools and secure an I-20.. The validity of the F1 visa is until the length of the student’s academic program. They need to complete their studies as per the expiration date mentioned on their I-20 form which has been provided by the institution or college.
As an Indian student intending to study in the U.S.A., you will need to acquire a U.S.A. student visa from a U.S. Embassy near you. The U.S. Embassies in India are located in New Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Chennai, and Mumbai.
The process for obtaining a U.S.A. student visa from one of these embassies might seem long and complicated, but the more you are prepared and the faster you put together your documentation, the quicker you will be able to start your adventure at a U.S.A. university.
