The US Embassy will be working with you on your visa and other required documentation to enter the United States

If you have any doubt about your documents or have concerns about your tickets, please contact the Embassy immediately.

You will process through customs and immigration inspection at whatever airport you first arrive into the United States. This process is carried out by U. S. Customs and Border Protection.

Once you arrive at the airport, it is extremely important that you deplane quickly, claim your baggage, then proceed to the non-U.S. citizen line for customs and immigration screening by a U. S. Customs and Border Protection official as this process can take quite some time. Occasionally visitors are sent from the regular inspection lane to an office for an interview; do not be alarmed by this as it is a standard practice in U.S. airports.

After your visa documentation has been inspected and you’ve answered the official’s question, you will then proceed to the international arrivals terminal exit. When you arrive at your final destination airport, a UD staff member will be waiting for you there, and you’ll know it’s us because we will be holding up signs with the University of Delaware logo. After greeting you at the airport, we will drive to the hotel where you will check-into your room and receive your first cash disbursement.


This is a program of the U.S. Department of State, administered by the University of Delaware.
