Services > Temporary Visas > Educational Visas

There are three different kinds of educational visas:

F-1 visas are for foreigners who come to pursue academic education, at any level, in the USA, on a full-time basis at an approved institution. The foreign student will have to show that he/she has sufficient funds to pay for the education and that he/she has sufficient preparation to complete the course of study. A foreigner under this type of visa is generally not permitted to work in the USA without prior authorization from U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services.

M-1 visas are for vocational students that are coming to engage in a full-time program at a recognized nonacademic institution. Students under this visa are not precluded from attending public institutions and may attend a high school, community or junior college, or other post-secondary vocational or nonacademic program. Students under this visa may not engage in any work until they have completed their studies.
