    List of documents for a US student visa


    In addition to the general documents required to obtain a visa (a completed application form, a passport, confirmation of payment of state duties, photographs, a certificate of enrollment in an educational institution), for a successful interview, a student must prepare:

    1. Documents confirming the existence of close financial, social and family ties with the country of residence, which will force him to return to his country after completing his studies in the United States.

    2. Justification of a specific reason for studying in the United States.

    3. Educational documents confirming the level of training. It is recommended to provide the original school certificate with grades, certificates of passing standardized tests (SAT, TOEFL, IELTS, etc.) and diplomas.

    4. Financial and other documents that indicate the availability of available funds sufficient to cover all expenses of the first year of study and other expenses associated with stay in the United States.

    5. If the student receives sponsored financial aid from another person, proof of relationship with that person (for example, birth certificate), as well as sponsor’s financial documents must be provided.

    We would like to draw your attention to the fact that there is no standard list of documents for applying for an F-1 student visa, a list of documents is prepared individually by Feod Group visa specialists to obtain the desired result – a US entry visa.

      The choice of an educational institution is an important and crucial stage in the preparation of going abroad. But no less important point is obtaining a visa for a future student. Feod Group visa specialists and lawyers will help you with the successful obtaining of a visa.

      What to expect at an F-1 student visa interview at the U.S. Embassy?

      First of all, the visa officer must make sure that you really want to travel to the United States for the purpose of studying. That you do not plan to stay in the United States illegally and you have reasons to return home.

      Depending on the information provided in DS-160, you will be asked various questions about: institution, sponsor of your training, and future plans.

      For how long is a student visa issued in the United States?

      A US student visa is granted for the duration of the study. The student must complete the studies within the specified period, except in extreme situations when the curriculum has not been completed and the student has received permission to complete it. The student can stay in the United States during vacations and holidays. The student also retains F-1 status if he graduated from college and is continuing his graduate studies or if he has moved from one institution to another.

      Does a US student visa provide an opportunity to immigrate?

      When planning immigration to the United States, it should be understood that, although student visas do not belong to immigration, it does not directly lead to obtaining a residence permit (Green Card), but many of them imply the possibility of extension, and, as a result, to immigrate to the United States.

      How to avoid being denied a US student visa?

      To successfully apply for an F-1 student visa at the US Embassy, you must carefully prepare documents confirming the financial viability of the applicant and indicate the reasons for returning home. In many ways, obtaining a US student visa is similar to obtaining a tourist visa. Thus, the applicant must prove that he does not plan to stay in the United States after graduation and become an illegal immigrant.

      Features of enrollment for a student visa in the United States?

      Registration at the embassy for submission is based on the number of applications submitted and the number of visa officers who are currently dealing with this category of visa. Therefore, we recommend that all clients make an appointment to apply for a visa well in advance, no later than a month before the scheduled departure.

      Can I get a US student visa after a refusal?

      As a standard, you can apply for a visa after refusal after a year from the previous application. But, if you provide new documents supporting your application or documents that, in your opinion, will change the decision on your application, then you can submit immediately after the refusal received.
