Student Visa from Philippines to United States of America

Student Visa from Philippines to United States of America Description

  • The student's visa is for foreign students who are willing to study in the United States.
  • There are four types of student visas.
  • The F-1 visa is for students applying for a program that requires more than 18 hours of study in a week. This includes all undergraduate and graduate programs.
  • If you want to attend a college, university, elementary school, high school, seminary or language training course, the appropriate visa type is the F-1 visa.
  • You can take up on-campus work with restrictions.
  • The J-1 visa or Exchange Visitor Visa is for students, visiting scholars or lecturers pursuing an exchange program. 
  • For example, Fulbright scholars and many students on short-term study abroad programs from foreign universities will travel to the U.S. on a J-1 visa.
  • It is also given to candidates who have been sponsored by companies.
  • The M-1 visa is a type of student visa reserved for vocational and technical schools. 
  • It is for those attending a vocational or technical course or other non-academic institutions.
  • While the process remains similar to an F-1 visa, the difference is that on entering, the M-1 visas are time-stamped and students cannot overstay their visit.
  • You may not work until you have completed your study program in the USA.
  • The Q-1 visa is for participants in an international cultural exchange program.
  • The school you intend to attend and the course of study will determine what category of student visa you will be applying for.
  • You should have applied to study in the institution of choice and must have been accepted before you can apply for and be issued any of the categories of the student visa.
  • The admission letter from the institution you have been admitted to be submitted.
  • It is mandatory to provide proof of accommodation for your stay in the USA.
