Visa Information

Required of all International Attendees

Citizens of foreign countries that wish to enter the United States will be required to obtain a visa to enter the U.S.A.

Visitor Visa
If you are attending IPSI/APLI for business purposes or for pleasure/recreation we suggest you apply for a visitor visa.  The form I-20 is not required for a visitor visa, and the process is handled completely by you.  A visitor visa takes less time to obtain than an F1 visa; however, you should still apply well in advance of your travel date.

If you wish to travel to the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program please visit

F1 Student Visa
If you are a student currently enrolled in a program of study at another institution, we suggest you apply for an F1 visa.  Applying for an F1 visa takes time, so it is in your best interest to get started on the process sooner rather than later. 

You will be required to:

1. Show proof of English language proficiency (TOEFL, IELTS, or letter from a previous institution stating method of instruction was in English).

2. Complete the UNH School of Law International Applicant Financial Declaration (IAFD), certifying that you have enough funding for your tuition and living expenses during IPSI/APLI.  Documentation required for this form includes a copy of your passport, letter from your bank and/or an affidavit of support (if funds are being provided by someone other than you).  Specific details are provided on the IAFD.

If you have additional visa-related questions, please contact Christine Rousseau for assistance at
