Student visa for the USA

If you want to study abroad and are concerned about a student visa, here's some good news: “the issuing procedure is becoming more agile and less bureaucratic. 95% of visa applications are approved ”, was said by the US State Department vice consul, Robert Grossman, during the 11th EducationUSA Fair .

Your chances of making it to the United States are great. The visa is only denied in very specific cases, “as in the case of improper use of the visa on previous occasions, that is, when the visa is for a short course and the person stays for longer than allowed, for example , or in cases where the person tries to tell a lie in the interview at the Visa Applicant Service Center (CASV) ”, says Robert.
