US to issue F and M student visas up to 1 year in advance


The United States Department of State recently announced a new policy allowing F and M student visas to be issued up to 365 days in advance of the academic start date, as shown in the I-20 Certificate of Eligibility.  It should be noted that students are still not allowed to enter the U.S. on a student visa more than 30 days before their program start date. 

The change provides more flexibility and opportunities for early planning for foreign students who plan to study in the United States.
