USA Requirements for a Student Visa

Seeking Non-Permanent Immigration

A student visa, also known as the F-1 visa, is one which is granted to students who are coming to the United States to study. In order to qualify for a student visa, there are specific requirements that must be met to show that the individual in question is a candidate for this particular visa. Having a San Jose immigration attorney on the case can greatly benefit the application process and the outcome.

A few examples of requirements which must be met include the following:

  • The applicant must show that she has a foreign residence and has no intent to abandon it.
  • The applicant must show that the sole purpose of entering the U.S. is to study.
  • The applicant must show that he/she is a student qualified to pursue a full course of study.
