Applying for visas is often seen as complicated, but IDP Education’s trained counsellors are experts in guiding students through the application process.
Here is some information on applying for student visas in the USA.
F-1 visa (USA student visa)
The F-1 visa (Academic Student) allows an individual to enter the United States as a full-time student at an accredited college, university or other academic institution. A student must be enrolled in a program or course of study that culminates in a degree, diploma or certificate and the school must be authorised by the US government to accept international students.
Steps for applying for a USA student visa
The visa application process starts with the receipt of an I-20. The I-20 confirms a student’s acceptance and enrolment at a university or other educational institution.
- Pay the SEVIS fee (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System)
- Pay the visa fee at the nominated bank
- Complete the visa application form
- Book a visa interview appointment
- Attend your visa interview
- Your passport is returned to you by courier
Remember, your personal IDP Education counsellor will help you from start to finish, providing assistance in organising documents, completing the forms, and preparing you for the interview with the visa officer at the USA Embassy.
