Obtaining a Visa to Visit a Foreign Country

How to Secure a Travel Visa to a Foreign Country

Some embassies have visa application information on their respective web sites. Visit www.embassy.org for lists of foreign embassies in the United States.

If you do not feel comfortable handling your visa application by yourself you can obtain assistance through various for-profit organizations.  While we do not endorse the following for-profit agency, we have found them to be friendly and efficient for ISS business travel purposes.
