NASSAU, Bahamas -- As part of an ongoing effort to promote study opportunities in the United States, the U.S. Embassy’s Chief of the Non-Immigrant Visa Unit, Ms. Sally Sternal held an information session for students and parents at St. Andrew’s School on March 22 where she provided an overview of higher education opportunities in the U.S. and discussed the student visa application process.
Over the last six months, the U.S. Embassy has conducted similar outreach events at a number of public and private school on New Providence as part of President Obama’s hemisphere-wide 100,000 Strong in the Americas Initiative, which he announced in Chile last March. The goal of the “100,000 Strong” initiative is to ensure that students in the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America are prepared for the 21st Century global workforce through increased understanding and greater collaboration between universities and educational institutions in the region.
For additional information on the student visa process, please visit U.S. Embassy Nassau’s website at http://nassau.usembassy.gov and select “Non-Immigrant Visa” Tab.
