General F-1 Visa Description

The F-1 visa is a temporary non-immigrant visa for foreign nationals studying in the United States.
In order to obtain the F-1 visa, you must go to a university or school that qualifies.
This visa also applies for English language schools, but not vocational schools (but don’t worry, there is a visa for that, the M1 visa). 

Common Issues F-1 Visa Applicants Have:

Not showing sufficient ties to their home country
Inconsistencies in their forms and interview
Lack of English skills
Not appropriately describing your situation to the Visa Officer

  • Although you can always get another appointment for the student visa interview, as a former Visa Officer, I would strongly recommend doing everything you can to prepare in order to get approved on your first try. Your visa record is permanent and cumulative, and with each denial it will be harder to get an approved visa. When you go into your interview with a prior refusal, it will be harder for you to prove that you are eligible for the visa.
