Visa Information

Congratulations! You have been accepted to FHSU! Now you will need to apply for a student study visa in order to enter the United States. Applying for a student visa for the first time requires an in-person interview. June, July, and August are usually the busiest months, so it might be difficult to get an appointment during this time.

Do not wait until the last minute! You are encouraged to apply for your visa as soon as you know when you plan to travel. Allow several weeks for planning and getting an appointment for the visa. You can call the Embassy or go to the Embassy web site for information and instructions.

Below are several guides to help you successfully navigate the process to obtain your student study visa.
