Obtaining a Visa

Participants are expected to arrange their own transportation to the Institute, as well as to obtain the necessary travel documents from their country of origin or residence. For purposes of obtaining a visa, participants may use their letter of acceptance to the Institute as their official “invitation” to attend.

Please note that IWL participants should apply for a “tourist” visa -- rather than a student visa -- since they will be attending the IWL for only one month and this is NOT a credit program, so IWL cannot sponsor your visa.

Since the process for obtaining a visa can take time, please make sure that you leave enough time for the process to be completed successfully.
