Step 3: Admission Decision

The admission decision will be released 2 weeks after receiving a full application.



Step 4: Visa Application & Arrival in USA

MIM is authorized by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to issue the I-20 form. Once you have been accepted into the program, you can apply for a visa. An I-20 form and a letter of acceptance will be sent to you. MIM students are required to study full-time.


Overseas students will need to go to their local U.S. Consulate or Embassy with their passport, I-20 form issued by MIM, and appropriate financial information to apply for the corresponding Visa.


Please contact us if you have any questions.



Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a non-immigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence.


If you are not a US citizen or Permanent Resident, you must have a student visa to study in the United States. Your course of study and the type of school you plan to attend determine whether you need a J-1 visa or an M-1 visa. MIM is a recognized vocational institution and sponsor and offers J-1 visa (all programs) or M-1 (6-month International Business Studies Program only) to its students.


A J-1 visa is a temporary, non-immigrant student visa that allows foreign post-secondary students to study in the US through an approved, government-sponsored exchange program. Students on a J-1 visa may undertake the study of degree or non-degree programs until completion and an internship that will provide credit for a degree course in their home country.
