Iíll try to guide you step by step process to obtain F-1 student visa. Go through these processes to obtain F-1 student visa.
First youíll need to have I-20. I-20 is issued by university or college youíve applied once your application is approved.
If youíve got an I-20, make an appointment for a visa interview. For different countries, the method of making an appointment can be different. Depending upon your country, either youíll have to take an appointment from US Consulate office itself or any other agent authorized by US Immigration office. For more information on this issue, contact US embassy visa department in your country.
Get visa application forms and fill them up. Depending upon length of stay and program youíll study, the form required may be different. The different forms are DS-156, DS-157, and DS-158. Identify which forms you require and complete them.
Pay visa fee. It may be different in different country.
