Entry into the United States
Please note that FIUTS does not handle international travel arrangements or provide visas for entry to the United States. Please contact your local US consulate or embassy for details of entry requirements to the United States.
FIUTS custom programs provide both educational instruction and recreation for short term visitors, and as such, groups should apply to visit the US on a B1 or B2 visa. Using this visa, participants are permitted to enroll in any course of study less than 18 hours per week and to travel within the US for tourist purposes. FIUTS does not issue I-20 forms, but will work with your group to provide proof of program admission and participation as necessary to apply for travel documents.
