What are the types of entry visas to America?

[1] F1 visa for students: The F1 visa is issued to international students who intend to enroll in an academic program or an English language program at a US college or university. F-1 students are required to maintain a minimum load of course studies for regular students. They can stay in the United States for up to 60 days after the end of their academic program, unless they have applied to extend their stay in order to work for a certain period under the OPT program. And it was approved.

[2] J-1 Student Visa: The J-1 visa is for those who wish to participate in work-and-study-based cultural exchange programs in the United States. These programs are usually sponsored by educational or other non-profit institutions, accredited by the US Department of State as an exchange and visitor program. J-1 visa holders visit the United States for the purposes of teaching, studying, or to receive practical training not available in their home country where the training must be directly related to their academic studies.

[3] M-1 student visa: This visa is intended for non-academic studies, or what is known as professional studies. M-1 visa holders are not permitted to work during their study period as they must provide evidence when applying for this visa that they have sufficient funds to cover all tuition fees and living costs for the duration of their stay in the United States.

[4] The H-1B visa: This visa is for non-immigrants wishing to work in America. This visa enables individuals from all over the world to work in the United States for a specific company or employer. They are specially designed for workers in specialized jobs that require high levels of education and technical expertise such as science, medicine, engineering and mathematics. The H-1B visa is a great way for foreign students in the United States who hold an F-1 visa and want to extend their stay in America after the end of their academic programs, to continue working in the country and continue to gain experience in a specific field. This visa is granted for a period of three years in general, with the possibility of extending it for a further three years in special cases. Unlike other visas that you can apply for in person, the H-B1 visa requires that your employer apply for it.

[5] The random immigrant visa, or known as "Green Card": The random immigrant visa is a lottery program administered by the US government through the Department of State, and provides about 50,000 opportunities for foreigners from all countries to immigrate to America, work and live there permanently. This method is considered one of the easiest ways to obtain US citizenship, as you apply and await the annual withdrawal results. Although it is one of the simplest ways to obtain US citizenship, the application and eligibility procedures are very complicated and strict.
