Documents required for applying SSN on Students Visa


Recommended Posts

for F1 its not called SSN....its something else...I dont recollect.


Maybe you are thinking of a TIN - Taxpayer Identification Number - that are issued by the IRS for people who do not qualify for a SSN, e.g. for dependents claimed on a tax return.  On a F-1 visa you (will need to) get a SSN once you have a on-campus job offer from the university / college you are attending.  You need a SSN to work (you cannot use a TIN for work).
