Being the 3rd largest country - both landmass and population wise, United States of America, a federal republic of 50 states in the North American Continent has got everything from the arid deserts in the South to the beautiful Pacific coastline in the West, from Rocky Mountains in the North to some of the best cities of the world in the East. With a total population exceeded only by China and India, the US is identified to have an extraordinary diversity in ethnic and racial heritage.  Although the country is relatively new to the global world, its rapid growth since the 18th century has been unprecedented which has made the US, the World Power due to almost all factors including the world’s largest economy, the biggest military budget, largest coal reserves, world’s best criminal justice, healthcare and education systems and so forth.
It is no surprise that the US media has a global audience along with its world-famous television shows, music videos and Hollywood movies. The US continues to sustain an economic life that is more diversified than any other country on earth, providing the majority of its people with one of the world’s highest standards of living and opportunities for unparalleled personal advancement and wealth.

Important provinces of America

Washington D.C. (D.C. – District of Columbia), capital city of the United States is a working federal city, an international metropolis, a picturesque tourist destination, an unmatched treasury of the country’s history and artifacts, and a cosmopolitan centre that retains a neighborly small-town vicinity. Much of the fascination towards Washington is accredited to the hundreds of outdoor sculptures and monuments that adorn the parks, gardens, buildings, avenues, and cemeteries of the city.

The population of America is just as extensive as its climates, landscapes, flora and fauna. If you prefer the rugged mountains, isolation and an artic climate, then you will find your perfect vacation in Alaska. Those of you who prefer the sun, beaches and a tropical climate will find everything they want and more in Florida.

The most popular regions among foreign migrants are:

  1. California is occupied with well-known cities like San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles and the world-famous Hollywood glam of course. Silicon Valley in California is also an important IT and high-tech hub of the nation.
  2. New York or the ‘Big Apple’, being the biggest metropolis with 4.5 million immigrants attracts the maximum number of foreigners from across the world towards its big financial institutions, overcrowded streets, exploding housing prices and expensive restaurants, with the centre being Manhattan.
  3. Texas, the cowboy and barbeque-loving state is the 2nd largest and the 2nd most populated state, with the 2nd highest economy in the United States that is boosted by its oil companies and the growing tech-industry.
  4. Florida also known as the ‘Sunshine State’, is known for the Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, South Beach, Tampa and the area around Naples on the west coast. Agriculture and tourism are the biggest factors driving Florida’s economy.

Applying for a Student Visa:

Applying to stay in the US for a lasting period of time is tedious. The government is quite strict and demanding, but if you submit all required documents and adhere to the American government’s instructions, studying in the US will become an easy chore.  Your course of study and the type of school you plan to attend determine whether you need an F Visa or an M Visa.

F Visa is granted to students studying in the following categories:

  • University or College
  • High School
  • Private Elementary School
  • Seminary
  • Conservatory
  • Another academic institution, including a language training program

M Visa is for students willing to pursue a Vocational or other recognized non-academic institution, other than a language training program.

For short periods of recreational study, a Visitor (B) Visa may be appropriate that permits enrolment in a short recreational course of study, which is not for credit toward a degree or academic certificate.

How to apply for a Student Visa?

1. Fill the online Visa Application form (Form DS-160), keep a printed application with you for future reference
