Visas

A visa is usually an entry stamp placed in your passport. This allows you entry into a foreign country. A visa is issued by the country's government prior to arrival. Visa requirements vary from country to country depending on the length of time and purpose of your stay. You will need to contact the nearest consulate for the country you will be visiting and ask about the visa requirements. Please check with your SASE Advisor to inquire about whether your program requires a student visa.
