Foreign Embassies in the U.S. can be great resources for information about their country. You may find it useful to contact the embassy in the U.S. for the country in which you will study abroad. Most foreign embassies are located in Washington D.C. If you are required to obtain a student visa for your study abroad destination, you should check with the embassy for your country to find out about the application process and regulations. Usually, you will apply for your visa through a consulate located in a major city near your home town, rather than through the Embassy itself.
