How do you get a student visa extension?

I need to stay at least one more year.

You reapply through the same channels that granted the initial visa. Generally, these matters are handled by the Consulate or Embassy of the granting country.

Before your current visa expire start taking steps not to secure the extension. Get the services of a qualified immigration lawyer so he can file the paperwork for you. To get an extension you need to show the immigration people why it is necessary for you to stay in this country.

You can apply for an extension to finish school if needed. Most school officials such as your Dean of Admissions can assist you in extending your stay time. You will need to file the I-20 extentension along with your passport,form I-94, arrival/departure documentation, and a letter stating the reason for an extension.

To extend your visa, you must apply to the Consulate or Embassy that granted the visa in the first place. Contact that entity for details of their procedure.
