Questions?

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 Chinese 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.
