5 Steps to Study Abroad Success

Step 1 Research

Visa Information

Visa-Waiver Countries

There are some countries whose governments do not require a visa for visiting students. Those countries that do not require a visa for approved study are called "Visa-Waiver Countries". Some schools also allow students to study part-time as tourists. After selecting a destination country for studying abroad, students should research whether or not a visa is necessary and if so what type. This information can easily be obtained from your chosen ESL school or by contacting the destination country''s Consulate or Embassy.
