Travel and Visas
All students studying abroad must possess a valid passport from their country of citizenship. If you are a U.S. citizen and do not currently have a passport, you should visit https://www.usps.com/shop/apply-for-a-passport.htm for details.
It is the responsibility of the student to procure the proper visa for studying in Belgium. Students may be required to apply for the visa in person. Please contact the consulate in your jurisdiction to find out how to apply, and what materials are needed for the Belgian student visa.

Please note: If you plan to study abroad in a country that requires a student visa, you will be guided through the application process by the OSA staff. While the Office of Study Abroad will assist participants about procedures and requirements, securing a visa is an individual responsibility, and not one that OSA or Webster University can or will assume. Webster University is not legally in a position to give any advice on applying for a visa. If you need further information, please direct your inquiries to the Belgian consulate that serves your region.
If you need assistance with your visa application, you may seek help with a visa services company, typically for an additional fee. NAFSA, Association of International Educators, recommends Perry International located in Chicago.
