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 student visa attorney on the case can greatly benefit the application process and the outcome.
