What is a Visa?

A visa is an endorsement or stamp placed in your passport by a foreign government
that permits you to visit that country for a specified purpose and a limited time,
for example, an exchange visitor visa or a three-month tourist visa. You must have
a valid passport before applying for a visa.

Visa Requirements per Country

Complete information on Foreign Entry Requirements is available from:

The U.S. Department of State: U.S. Visas

Passport and visa services companies:   


It is advisable to obtain visas before leaving the United States because you may not
be able to obtain visas for some countries once you have departed.

Where to Apply

You should apply directly to the embassy or nearest consulate of each country that
you plan to visit or consult a travel agent or visa service. Allow a minimum of one
week to obtain a visa.


Passport agencies cannot help you obtain visas. The Office of International Programs
can assist you with visa requirements such as letters of support and invitations,
as needed.
