Pre-departure Links


Almost all countries require you to obtain a visa for stays longer than 90 days and sometimes even for shorter stays. A visa, often in the form of a stamp in your passport, grants you permission to enter and study in the host country.

For more information, please visit the links below or the State Department's website for general information about entry requirements for specific countries. You might also visit the website for the nearest consulate of the country in which you are studying. For example, students studying in Spain might visit the website for the Spanish Consulate in Chicago.

Remember: You must submit your passport and program acceptance letter along with your visa application and other required documents. Most consulates will not accept visa applications earlier than 90 days before your program start date and sometimes no later than 60 days before that same date.
