In light of terrorist activity in Europe—and the U.S. State Department's update to the October 2014 Worldwide Travel Caution—Notre Dame International reminds Notre Dame travelers, especially students in Study Abroad programs, of the following resources and preventative safety measures:
Visitor Visa Letter
Visitor visa letters are not required by US embassies to obtain a visa. In fact, the U.S. Department of State clearly states that such letters will not be taken into consideration at visa interviews. However, we realize that some students and scholars still like to provide these letters to family abroad. If you would like to obtain a support letter for your relatives, please visit ISSA in the Main Building, room 105. You will be asked to fill out a form letter with the following information for each visitor:
- Full legal name (as listed on passport)
- Relationship to yourself
- Country of citizenship
- Reason for visit and length of stay
Once an advisor signs the letter you will be able to send it to your relatives abroad.
