What’s The F1 Visa?

Basically, the F1 Visa is for students who plan to enroll in full-time degrees and academic programs at US institutions.

In 2015, an all-time high of 644,000 visas was reached. Although this number remains unmatched, the current numbers seem to grow steadily.

According to the Institute of International Education, there has been a growth in international student enrollments since last September since the drop during the 2020-21 pandemic.
