This page provides a summary of the VISA REQUIREMENTS for the different countries offered through our study abroad program. A full list of the required visa application documents will be provided to students upon completion of booking and payment of the course.
No. Full-immersion will forward you the necessary schools invitations to start the visa procedure. The invitations are issued by the institutes/schools where you are going to study, and the institutes are authorized to issue invitations to international students. We act as intermediaries for the purpose of facilitating communication between students and institutions.
Neither we, nor schools, are able to guarantee that you will obtain the visa you applied for, although we do not have an history of rejected visa applications. Immigration laws are the exclusive subject of competent institutions, so you must ALWAYS follow the procedures described in the institutional portals of the embassies and consulates of the countries you are willing to visit.
No. We advise you to book General English, 20 lessons per week (you may add as many one to one lessons as you wish), so you do not have to follow the long-term visa procedure.
The documentation required to apply for a visa (LOA, acceptance letters, I-20, etc.) will be sent as soon as the course has been paid in full. The documentation can be sent by standard post (takes normally 7-10 days – not guaranteed as the delivery time may vary) or by express mail (it takes 3 days – guaranteed by the courier service – this service is subject to charges). Contact us to check shipping costs with updated express mail.
✔ Do I need to apply for a visa?
No: If the duration of your stay is less than 90 days, there is generally no need to apply for a visa. However, despite this general rule, some nationalities may still have some specific visa requirements.
Yes: If you enroll in a course that will last 90 days or more (or if you are from a country that is not listed on the ESTA website) you will need to apply for an F1 Student Visa.
