HOW TO OBTAIN YOUR VISA
If you intend to apply for a student (F-1) visa, a Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20) will be sent to you upon request with your ELI Intensive English Program acceptance letter. You must apply for and obtain your student visa to enter the United States before you leave your home country. To apply for your visa, take the letter of acceptance, the Certificate of Eligibility, and SEVIS payment receipt to the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate, along with your passport and official letter of financial support, and any other necessary supporting documents, such as transcripts or academic records. Additional information on how to apply for a student visa is available at the Department of State Web site: http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/temp/types/types_1268.html

B-1, B-2 and F-2 visa holders are not permitted to enroll in any full-time program of English Language or academic study.

THE SEVIS FEE

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced implementation of the new SEVIS Fee effective September 1, 2004 . The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) was mandated by Congress to help maintain information about international students and exchange visitors while they are in the U.S. Congress also mandated that the SEVIS program be self-funding; therefore DHS has implemented the SEVIS fee. The SEVIS fee must be paid before you can have your visa interview at the U.S. Consulate to which you will apply for your student visa. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office maintains a Web site with detailed information about the new SEVIS fee. Please visit the ICE website below and carefully read the instructions about paying the SEVIS fee. The SEVIS fee can be paid through the mail or on-line with a credit card. We encourage you to use the on-line payment method as it is much faster than paying by mail. Please read all instructions carefully.
