Visa application

The United States Immigration and Naturalization Service recommends that all students should contact the US Embassy or Consulate in their country 90 days in advance of their arrival in the USA. This is to ensure that enough time is available to obtain the required visa.

Wiseward strongly recommends that prospective students take this into account when applying to study at one of our US schools or colleges. If you wish to study with us and need any help or advice regarding US visa application procedures, please contact us.
