Visa - Very Important!

The Russian government requires students to hold a valid student visa for their period of study. By March 1 you must possess a passport that will be valid for at least 18 months after your return to the U.S. Students who do not meet this requirement may be ineligible to join the program. AIFS pays the visa application fee on your behalf and your AIFS Admissions Officer will provide the details and information on how to apply for your visa. Students who submit applications/visa materials after the deadline may have to pay a shipping fee.

As you will have a single-entry visa, if you leave Russia during the program you will not be allowed to re-enter. Russian visa regulations and requirements are subject to constant change. You will be given the most up to date information and advice upon acceptance.
