Student visa is probably one of the most commonly known nonimmigrant visa type among all others and there are actually a few other visa types that are also used from by people coming over to the United States for study or training purposes, such as B-1, H-3, J-1, and M-1 visas, etc.
"F" visa is designed for international students coming over to the United States to pursue academic educations, even though it often used for a non-degreed and short course of language training known as "English as a second language" (ESL) programs, too, which often leads to continued studies in an actual degree oriented academic programs.
There are two types of sub-categories under this "F" visa classification:
F-1 for students
F-2 for spouse or child(ren) of the F-1
If you have any questions regarding F-1/2, please provide us as much information as possible. If you currently have a pending case with a receipt number please also provide it. If you have a challenge from the USCIS either in form of a "Request for Evidence" (RFE) or "Intent to Deny" (ITD) or "Intent to Revoke" (ITR), please provide us either a copy of that challenge through email or fax (972-994-0088) so that we have a better understanding of the problems at issue.
