  3. 3. What is student VISA? (F1)  F1 Visa : student VISA  You must have a student visa to study in the United States. Your course of study and the type of school you plan to attend determine whether you need an  F-1 visa - Academic  M-1 visa. – Vocational Program

  7. 7. Examples of being not truthful :  In filling out the standard F-1 Visa Application Form, some students, in answering the question about how many of their family members are currently in the U.S., will answer none. But, in some embassies the officers may have information in their data base that indicates that, in fact, the applicant does have close family members in the U.S. Such deception can disqualify an applicant.
  8. 8. Examples of being not truthful :  The officer might ask, Why did you select this school? Often students will erroneously believe that it is easier to get a visa if they apply to a well know school, so they will answer the question, I selected it because it is a famous school. The truth might be that the applicant has a friend there, or family members nearby, or because the school has offered financial aid, etc. Applicants should answer truthfully rather than claim that the school is famous, especially if it is a school the visa officer has never heard of.
  9. 9. (2) IS THIS A SERIOUS STUDENT?  The great majority of international applicants who apply for F-1 visas are applying for this visa because they sincerely want to complete the course of study to which they have been accepted by the American school.  A serious student generally will have good marks, good English skills, sufficient resources available to pay for his/her education, and a reasonable plan for a career after graduation.

A: I can't think of any  Q: How many courses are you required to take to get your degree? A: I believe quite a lot  Q: How many years will it take for you to graduate? A: I think it says that somewhere here on the I-20 form
  11. 11. 3) DOES THIS APPLICANT HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDS?  Immigration Law requires that all international students applying for an F-1 visa to study in the U.S. must have available liquid assets to pay for the first academic year of study.
  12. 12. DOES THIS STUDENT HAVE SUFFICIENT TIES TO THE HOME COUNTRY THAT WILL ENSURE HIS/HER RETURN AFTER GRADUATION?  At the time of the initial interview for an F-1 visa, the intent of the student must not be to go the U.S. and try to stay there.  How to prove?  (a) Family Ties  (b) Economic Ties  (c) Employment Ties  (d) Social Ties  (e) Emotional Ties
  13. 13. Article from US Embassy Website  To qualify for non-immigrant visas, applicants must meet the requirements of U.S. immigration law.

  14. 14. Section 214(b) of the U.S  Burden of Proof : what this means is that the visa officer is told to believe that you are going to immigrate to the U.S. So, it will be your job to convince him/her that you do not intend to immigrate, but instead are wanting to go to the U.S. and study for your master's degree so you can then return to your home country and have the skills to enable you to get a better paying job.
