Once you’re accepted to a US university, you’ll have to start the visa application process. And, we won’t lie to you — this process can be really confusing! But thankfully, there are a lot of resources out there to help you figure it all out, and hundreds of thousands of students are able to successfully obtain visas each year. And the best part? You don’t need to worry about applying to get your visa until after you’re accepted to your program of choice. Phew! Regardless, it’s still a good idea to familiarize yourself with the process as early on as possible — this will make it that much easier once you’re actually ready to start your visa application. 🙂 Here are some really helpful resources to guide you through:
