The F and M student visas

immigration attorney lawyer chicago student visa f-1 f-2 f-3 Canada Mexico m-1 m-2 m-3The United States has long believed in the importance of education and allowing foreign nationals to study in the U.S.  The nonimmigrant student visa category was created to fulfill this purpose.

The most common student visa is the F visa, with its subcategories of F-1, F-2 and F-3. The F-1 visa is for academic students and those in language training programs. The F-2 visa allows spouses and children to join their F-1 relative, while the F-3 is for part-time commuter students from Canada or Mexico.   

Similar to the F visa, there the M visa with its subcategories of M-1, M-2 and M-3. The M-1 visa is for students who are attending vocational and other nonacademic schools. The M-2 visa allows spouses and children to join their M-1 relative, while the M-3 is for part-time commuter students from Canada or Mexico.
