Applicants must obtain their own visas for travel to the United States. Contact the United States Embassy located in your country to learn about visa requirements. We recommend that you begin the visa application process immediately, even if you are still waiting for approval of tuition and travel expenses to attend the Institute. Applicants who were fully funded have been unable to attend the Institute because of delays in securing visa approval. Our recommendation is, “Start early!”
For participants who need a visa to travel to the United States, more information is available at the following site: http://travel.state.gov/pdf/BusinessVisa.pdf
Participants traveling to the United States on behalf of their national government to engage solely in official activities for that government may qualify for a Diplomatic Visa.
