Visa and Immigration Information

A visa is “an endorsement on a passport indicating that the holder is allowed to enter, leave, or stay for a specified period of time in a country”.

Citizens of the United States may enter the Schengen Area (most of Europe) without a visa for up to 90 days at a time; if you are a citizen of the United States, you do not need a visa to travel in Poland, Austria or Hungary for this program.

IMPORTANT: If you are not a citizen of the United States, you may be required to obtain a visa prior to travel. CISabroad is not a visa processing centre. It is your responsibility to understand the immigration laws surrounding your country’s requirements for visiting Poland, Austria and Hungary. Your program manager can provide documents you may need to support your visa application.
