Frequently Asked Questions

Who is RapidVisa?

Founded in 2007, RapidVisa has helped over 70,000 people on their immigration journeys with a Better Business Bureau “A+” Rating and a 99.7% success rate. RapidVisa has been featured in Fast Company, Newsweek, and The Washington Post, among others. In 2020, RapidVisa became part of Boundless Immigration.

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!

If you have specific legal questions and would like to consult with an immigration attorney before proceeding with RapidVisa or the student visa service, you may be interested in Boundless’ Ask My Attorney (AMA) service. AMA is a subscription service where subscribers pay $49 to get 30-minute consultations with Boundless-affiliated independent immigration attorneys. Learn more about Ask My Attorney.

How much does this all cost?

RapidVisa can help you assemble and file your F-1/M-1/J-1 student visa application for $175. This flat rate covers your complete application package, interview prep, and personalized support from start to finish. For government fees, F-1/M-1 applicants pay a $160 Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee and $350 Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) fee, while J-1 applicants pay a $160 MRV fee and $220 SEVIS fee.

How do you have a 99.7% success rate?

In order to maintain such a high success rate for our customers, every application that is completed through RapidVisa goes through a rigorous quality assurance process with four different reviews. This includes a thorough review by an experienced RapidVisa Document Review Specialist to catch any common errors or mistakes before you submit your application to the U.S. government.

How do I get started?

To get started on your application with RapidVisa, create your free account here: https://rapidvisa.com/start-free/. Follow the prompts to create your account, select the petition or application that applies to your situation (in this case, F-1/M-1/J-1) and simply answer the questions in our online questionnaire. We’ll take it from there!

At this time, Boundless is only able to help couples apply for a marriage green card through the adjustment of status process when the sponsor is a U.S. citizen. We are not able to assist if the sponsor is a U.S. green card holder.

We are not able to support applications of this kind due to their complexity and recent government changes to the Visa Bulletin, which determines when couples are able to file their adjustment of status application. 

If you have specific questions about your immigration status or ability to sponsor your spouse for a green card through the adjustment of status process, you may be interested in our attorney consultation service. Learn more about the program and sign up to speak to an immigration attorney here.

Boundless can help your entire family apply! We have over 10 years of experience helping thousands of applicants apply with their children and get their green cards together as a family. You can include any unmarried children age 18 or under on your application. Contact our team at [email protected] to learn more.

Boundless offers two service tiers to help you reach your family immigration goals:

Essential (Guided) Application Service:

Our immigration experts will help you prepare, check, and put together your USCIS application. You’ll have unlimited live support from our team.

Premium (Lawyer-Guided) Application Service:

Includes everything from the Essential service. Additionally, you’ll be assisted by an immigration attorney, including a video meeting, application check, and interview preparation with top immigration lawyers from our network.

Once you sign up for our Premium application package, you cannot switch to our Essential service. However, if you choose Essential, you can upgrade to a Premium package for additional lawyer support at any point during the process. 

We stand by our services with a 100% satisfaction guarantee within 14 days of purchase. If you are not fully satisfied with Boundless or your immigration plans change, please contact us at [email protected] to receive a full refund.

Whether or not you enlist an immigration lawyer’s help for your visa application is a personal decision. Generally speaking, individuals with more complex cases (such as immigration status issues or criminal history) may benefit from the support of an immigration attorney. 

For our family immigration services, you’ll choose between two service tiers: Essential (Guided) application and Premium (Lawyer-Guided Application). If you want extra peace of mind with legal support, our Premium service may be the right choice for you. You can also sign up for the Essential service to start and upgrade to a Premium (Lawyer-Guided) application at any time during the process, if needed. 

No matter what Boundless service you choose, you’ll always get hands-on guidance from our team trained by immigration attorneys and former USCIS officers. With over 90,000 visa approvals and ten years of experience, we know what it takes for you to succeed.

*Please note that if you choose to pay your Boundless Essential fee using a payment plan, your base cost will be higher. $749 is the starting cost for paying the Boundless Essential fee upfront. In addition, if you choose to pay your USCIS fees over time with Boundless, we charge an additional fee. The additional fee is to account for our team writing the check to USCIS on your behalf. To see the exact service fee for your specific application and your total costs, please explore the checkout page or reach out to our team at [email protected].

Bundling Boundless’ service cost and your government fees saves you time and effort later on in the process.

When it comes time to file, our team will write the check to the government for you so you can apply stress-free. Bundling the costs eliminates the risk of fee payment mistakes that can cause significant delays or application rejections.
