Visa information USA
To take more than 18 hours per week of study, a student must have a student visa (not a tourist visa), obtained from the local American embassy/consulate. To apply for the visa, students need a completed I-20 form from the school. Regulations effective from June 2003: SEVIS, the new US government automated student visa system, means that in order to issue the I-20 form, financial documents from the student must be provided (e.g. a bank account statement) proving that he/she has “enough readily available funds” to study/live in the US for the period covered by the I-20 “available from an identified and reliable financial source”. Please contact the US embassy or consulate for precise information.
