Can anyone apply for a student visa?
In order to apply for an F-1, M-1, or J-1 visa, an applicant must have a sponsor (either a private or public institution such as a university) that has been approved by the U.S. Department of State. Approval from a sponsor is one of the eligibility requirements an applicant must meet before filing their student visa application. Upon acceptance into an accredited F-1/M-1/J-1 program, an official form I-20 (F-1/M-1) or DS-2019 (J-1) will be issued to the prospective student. RapidVisa’s team will determine whether you have a government-approved sponsor before moving forward with your application. More information on government-approved sponsors can be found on the U.S. Department of State website.
Before applying with Boundless + RapidVisa, Please note that this service is designed for individuals who are already admitted to a school or exchange program and need assistance applying for their visa. Boundless + RapidVisa cannot assist with finding you a school or exchange program to apply for, but once you are admitted and ready to complete the visa process, we are here to help!
Can RapidVisa guarantee my student visa will be approved?
Neither RapidVisa nor any third party can guarantee that an applicant for a student visa will be approved. The decision to approve or deny an application is completely up to the U.S. government.
Every application that is completed through RapidVisa, however, goes through a rigorous quality-assurance process and is thoroughly reviewed by our dedicated team before it is submitted to the U.S. government.
I have legal questions I need answered. Is there a way I can talk to an attorney?
If you have specific legal questions and would like to consult with an immigration attorney before proceeding with RapidVisa or the F-1/M-1/J-1 visa service, you may be interested in Boundless’ Ask My Attorney (AMA) service. AMA is a subscription service where subscribers pay $49 to get unlimited 30-minute consultations with Boundless-affiliated independent immigration attorneys. Learn more about Ask My Attorney.

Everything that could go wrong while applying for a visa during a pandemic, went wrong. Without the right documents and the corrections made by Rapid Visa, this lengthy process would have been doubled! The interviewer for my husband’s visa even commented on how well organized all his paperwork was. That was not a reflection of me, but Rapid Visa. All people who want to go about this process alone, don’t do it! Pay the fee and do it right the first time. It’ll be well worth it.
The process was easy. They guided us through all the paperwork and documents needed. They have 3 different people check each document package and if there was anything missing they contacted us, and sent them what was needed. They always answered questions promptly, I either called or emailed them. My wife now has her green card.
The eagle has landed! My husband arrived from Ghana in February. I am over the moon. Thank you for helping me to clearly understand the process. It helped us to avoid a lot of pitfalls.
Also, if you’re reading this review because you’re looking for a company to help you navigate the scary, treacherous waters of the US Fiance Visa process (or even the Green Card and Citizenship process), I absolutely cannot recommend RapidVisa enough!!!! They are an absolutely STELLAR company to work with! This is the third time I have used them, and each time, they have brought my wife and I through the process as smoothly as it could possibly be.
THANK GOD FOR RAPID VISA I am speechless. My fiance & I are so appreciative of Rapid Visa (RV). We were super nervous about our entire petition ordeal but when we hired RV... They simplified everything for us and made our path a little smoother and stress-free. We are forever grateful for them and in about 6 months, our petition was approved. We would not have done it without them. Anna Liza was so patient, kind, and very responsive to my needs. Thank you so much RV for having great passion in our petition!!!
