I’m handicapped how is my studies in USA and jobs please give me information.! – Chowdary.

Don’t let your handicap stop you from reaching for your dream of studying and working in USA.

You have the exact same opportunity as anyone else to study, work and live in USA.

F1 Visa and Handicap

As long as you will meet the requirements of Visa approval process, you will be able to get F1 Visa and study in USA.

Requirements for F1 Visa

  • Have a residence abroad, with no immediate intention of abandoning that residence;
  • Intend to depart from the United States upon completion of the course of study; and
  • Possess sufficient funds to pursue the proposed course of study.

F1 Visa page will give you more details.

One of my close friend got visa and he’s still in USA. Being Handicap will not lower your chances of getting visa or a job.


  1. Well yes you can why not, the whole place is very friendly to hadicapped, the buses lift the wheel chair all u need to do is reach the busstop, the pavements ways evrything is very guud, j mean whole infrastructure is good.

    And its a nice place, i had a tester from infosys working in our office and he was in a similar spot. Prople are more caring and concerned. All u need to think of is have the right frineds here..!!

  2. In US every where you can reach with wheel chair even you can do shopping ,it is very good for age old & handicapped person also sp.toilet is provided every where .this should be done in india also.

  3. You don’t have to worry about it. US is a good place and has arrangements everywhere.
    Best of luck ! 🙂

  4. Handicapped persons are treated with utmost respect in the USA. All campus facilities are equipped with support systems for physically challenged persons. US has the best infrastructure to take care of you, so go ahead and live your dream…Good luck!!!

  5. To what schools can I apply with a GMAT score of 660 (first attempt)? Schools in Europe or Australasia are preferable. I have an engineering degree in electronics from Madras University (64%) and an MBA in marketing from BIM trichy (CGPA 2.38 / 4). X – 84% XII – 88%.

          U.S. campus are friendly for disabled. You should be able to find a job.

  8. Hi, if a person is disabled, shall we need to check the option “Do you have a mental or physical disorder that poses or is likely to pose a threat to the safety or welfare of yourself or other” as Yes? My brother is blind in one eye but can see well with another eye.

      I din;t think you should check this. They are asking of you will be “dangerous to others”. You may have to seek help from an Attorney before checking that options.
