Updates for International Students in the U.S.

Visa Waiver Program

Seven new countries have been added to the United States Visa Waiver Program (VWP), allowing citizens of those countries to travel to the United States for business or tourism for up to 90 days without a visa.

These seven countries are the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Malta,  Lithuania, Slovakia, and South Korea. They will join the list of 27 countries already approved under this program. Nationals participating in the VWP must travel only for business, pleasure, or transit, stay in the United States for 90 days or less, and, if arriving by sea or by air, hold a valid ticket for return or onward travel.

This information is especially important for international students because once implemented, it will allow their family members from these countries to come to visit them in the United States for up to a 90 day period, without having to apply for a visitor visa.

Also note that effective July 1, 2009, all VWP emergency or temporary passports must be electronic passports (e-passports) to be eligible for travel to the United States under VWP.  Read the CBP Web site notice.

The entry registration period for DV-2011 is now over and all submission processing at this website has stopped.

View additional information on the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program.

Beginning on July 1, 2010, you may check your entry status on-line on the Web site using your number.  Winners will be notified by regular mail, not e-mail, but an e-mail address must be provided. Winners will be selected at random. Review the announcement.

You can access updated news and information via U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Web site.
