This information is designed to assist education abroad advisers as they guide their students to obtain a student visa to study abroad. Members of NAFSA's Consular Affairs Liaison (CAL) Subcommittee review these pages regularly for accuracy, but the consulate to which the student applies for a visa may change its procedures. Students and advisers should confirm specific procedures with each relevant consulate.
Additional regulatory information relevant to education abroad professionals is available on NAFSA's Education Abroad Regulatory Practice page.
