What do the terms F-1 and I-20 mean?

The F-1 visa is a non-immigrant, full-time, student visa that allows foreigners to pursue education in the United States. F-1 is the official name of the student visa.

A Form I-20 is a government form that tells the U.S. government that you are eligible for F-1 Student Status. It certifies that (1) you are or expect to be a “bona fide” student; (2) you meet our admissions requirements; (3) you will pursue a full course of study; (4) you proved to us that you have enough money to study and live in the U.S. without working illegally or suffering from poverty.

If you currently have health insurance in your home country, contact your provider and ask if your current coverage will cover you here in the United States.
