F-1/ M-1 STUDENT VISA

The United States is home to many fine universities. Every year students from around the world come to the United States to study. If you are a student planning on completing a course of study of more than 18 hours a week in the United States, you will need a student visa. The primary and most common types of student visas are F-1 and M-1 student visas. If you are planning on studying in the United States, get in touch with a Houston student visa lawyer. The Houston F-1 student visa lawyers at the Samavati & Samavati Law Firm will help you understand the process of obtaining an F-1 student visa or an M-1 student visa. We will explain to you the qualifications including:

  • The student must be coming to the U.S. as a Full-time student.
  • The school that the student has been accepted to must be approved by USCIS.
  • The student must be enrolled in a program that leads to the attainment of a specific vocational or educational objective
  • The student must be able to afford to study full-time without working.
  • The student must have an adequate grasp on the English language, the school must offer instruction in the student’s native language, or offer English tutoring
  • The student must intend to return back to their country once their studies are complete

There are some circumstances in which a student can apply for work. An F1 visa allows a student to work on campus for up to 20 hours a week while school is in session. If there is an unforeseen change in their financial situation, the student can apply for work with permission after their first year. An F-1 student visa also allows the student tow work for a year after graduating in practical training with permission. The M-1 allows this, but for only six months.
