The Difference Between F, M, and J Visas and how Immigration Attorneys can help
The F, M, and J visa categories are for foreign students who come to the United States to study at an accredited college or university, secondary school, or approved English language program. These Visas are also for participants in exchange visitor programs, including high school and college students, au pairs, trainees, scholars, teachers, professors, research assistants, and professionals. Let’s take a look at these Visas in detail and how Immigration attorneys in Los Angeles can help.
The F visa is for academic students. If you are coming to the United States to get a degree at a university, college, seminary, conservatory, academic high school, elementary school, or other academic institution as a full-time student you will need an F visa. You must maintain a full course of study and be in good standing at your educational institution in order to keep your F visa status.
The M visa is for non-academic or “vocational” students. If you are coming to the United States primarily to receive training at a vocational or other recognized nonacademic institution (other than in language training programs), you need an M visa. You must maintain a full course of study and be in good standing at your educational institution in order to keep your M visa status.
The J visa is for participants in exchange visitor programs, including au pairs, college and university students, secondary school students, teachers, professors, research assistants, specialists, trainees, physicians, and international visitors coming to the U.S. as part of the Department of State’s Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange program, camp counsellors, etc.
If you are unsure which category you fall into or have questions about the application process, it is best to consult with an experienced immigration lawyer who can help guide you through the process.
