Intern in London Visa

For the CISabroad Intern in London program, you WILL need to obtain a Tier 5 UKBA Visa. More than likely you have already received the Intern in London: TIER 5 VISA GUIDELINES, but please remember: It’s extremely important that you continue to check your email regularly, as your Program Coordinator will be emailing you with other important information regarding how and when to apply for your visa.

This is one of the most time-consuming visa applications of any country, and we ask for your assistance by being very prompt upon requests for documentation.

While we assist in the receipt of your tier-5 visa, it is your responsibility to meet deadlines/check on the status of your application.

Please read through the instructions carefully, as visa instructions can be complicated, and materials can take months to obtain.

IMPORTANT: CISabroad will only advise students on visa procedures for travel requirements for your CISabroad program only. CISabroad is not responsible for advising students on visa issues if they plan to travel internationally before or after the program dates.

These instructions are intended for US passport holders. International students must also be aware of additional documentation and/or processing time needed for their visas. Please contact your Program Coordinator to discuss your visa.

Please note that all consulates have varying visa processing times and/or requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of their assigned consulate’s visa processing period and to send in their complete visa application well enough in advance to allow adequate time for processing. Each consulate lists the visa processing period on their website. Note: Required documents for your visa are always subject to change at the discretion of the consulate.
