Trump Travel ban against Iranian nationals (regardless of age, gender, type of visas) along with imposed economic sanctions targets civilians and categorizes Moms and Grandmas under “Terrorists”. Meanwhile it opens endless opportunities for Russians to sign treaties with Iran in furtherance of huge economic advantages.
Same travel ban, however, spares Iranian students, researchers, scholars and scientists. Which in result assists the societal phenomena of “Brain Drain”.
In result, F, J and M visas are exempt—not banned. These visas are for full time students who wish to attend one of the many world class universities, high school, elementary school, or other academic institution in the U.S. US visa process and documentations have recently become more complex. So, we encourage you to consult with a legal expert (Immigration Lawyer) before you apply.
The U.S. is known worldwide for their University level education system. In a recent study, four out of the top five highest ranked schools worldwide were located in the U.S. These universities include Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Stanford, and the University of California Berkley. All of these colleges are highly prestigious and world renown.
The M-1 student visa is for foreign nationals who wish to enter a vocational school or to take other non-academic classes. There are many schools in the U.S. that offers training for foreign nationals to develop a skill that they can later use to obtain a career.
