Study Abroad Tips

Ready to study in the U.S.? Don’t Forget about the American Student Visa!

The US Visa Process can be confusing and intimidating – but it doesn’t have to be! Once you have your college acceptance, here’s what you should know. What is a VISA? A citizen of a foreign country who seeks to enter the United States generally must first obtain a U.S. visa, which is placed in the traveler’s passport, a travel document issued by the traveler’s country of citizenship. Your course of study and the type of school you plan to attend determine whether you need an F-1 visa or an M-1 visa.  See: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas.html for more information.
