Coming to the United States for the first time to study English can seem like a frightening experience for students. However, the process is not as difficult or complicated as
it seems. With AELS, you can find everything you need to know about studying English in the US, from getting the necessary documents, to visa interviews and acquisitions, to
entry to the US and ongoing support for living in the US. So, please contact us via email@example.com, refer to the general procedure below, or check the AELS offical blog for more
Submit the application form and a few supporting documents (such as a copy of your passport and bank statement in English) to the institute where you will be
studying. The school will confirm the application form and required documents and send the I-20 Form to the student by international mail once everything is
cleared. This is a very important document for your arrival and stay in the United States.
You must register online and pay the SEVIS fee. SEVIS is the identity management program for international students. The SEVIS fee
receipt is required for visa issuance and entry into the United States, so keep it secure. After paying the SEVIS fees, you must complete and submit the
online DS-160 Form, a US nonimmigrant visa application. DS-160 Submission Confirmation is required for visa interview.
After paying the visa fee, apply for a visa interview online at the visa interview application site by specifying the date that you can attend an interview.
Provide your identification documents, financial documentation, and other required documents, including the DS-160 Form. After checking the material for the
visa interview and preparing for it, you will attend the visa interview at the US Embassy in your home country.
If you are successful, you will be required to enter the language school and prepare for your stay in the United States (you must enter the US within 30 days
of the start date of your I-20 Form). You should contact the language school to discuss the start date, lodging/homestay, insurance, airport pickup, etc.,
and purchase your flight ticket. As soon as you arrive in the United States, you will immediately visit the language school and discuss your needs for
language education and student support services.

If you wish to change your status by replacing your current visa with a student visa,
please contact an AELS representative after preparing the following information. AELS lawyers
are the best fit for students who really want to study here in the U.S.
but need to change or reinstate their immigration status. Unlike other immigration lawyers,
who often use scare tactics to make a profit and have no incentive to work hard for the student
because they get paid in advance, we focus on truly taking care of each student’s case instead
of making a profit. We know that doing so adds to the reputation we have built for ourselves
here at AELS: our students’ ability to succeed in their English education is our main
priority and always will be.

lessons that cover these everyday tasks, such as shopping, going to the post office, reading and filling out government forms (ex. social security), attending school conferences, and
even studying for citizenship.

and pay for tuition on time.
