Visas for Students & Trainees

Temporary Visas For Students and Exchange Visitors
The United States welcomes foreign citizens who come to the U.S. to study or participate in an exchange program. Before applying for a visa, all student and exchange visitor applicants are required to be accepted and approved for their program. When accepted, educational institutions and program sponsors will provide each applicant the necessary approval documentation, to be submitted when applying for a visa. (Reference: Travel.State.Gov – US Dept of State)
