Being there is worth the trip
While Bloomington may be easy to get to for some families and guests, it is quite a trip for others. The Office of International Services (OIS) is available to help!
Family members or friends of international students can apply for a U.S. visitor visa at their nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. Not all embassies or consulates require the same documents for a visa application, so it is important for your guests to consult the embassy or consulate they plan to visit. Information about visitor visas, including appointment wait times, is available here. Encourage your guests to apply for a visa as early as possible.
