Visa Information

Visa Information



© 2004 IAU

Apply for a passport as soon as possible.

Below you will find links to embassies, consulates located in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, as well as other useful sites for travelers.

When applying for a student visa, materials must be presented to the consulate with jurisdiction over your PERMANENT ADDRESS. In most cases, this needs to be done in person.  U.S. citizens going to Ireland do not need student visas.

It is YOUR responsibility to ensure that you have the most recent information regarding student visa requirements for the consulate under whose jurisdiction you reside. Visa requirements are subject to change and may differ from consulate to consulate.

Note: If you appear at a consulate without all materials in order, you may be turned away. Remember, there is no legal right to a visa.
