    Visa Application

    Advertisements



    I begin school at Ross in September. How long does it take to get a Visa? How long before September should I have it completed (other than as soon as possible)? Can I get all the tests and vaccinations done at a health clinic or school, or an MDnow? Where should I get all of that done? Thanks for you help.

    two and a half months before school starts should be a good time to start.

    I remeber that I applied for my visa about 2 months before the semester started. I never got it until second semester. When I flew back into the island after the break between first and second semesters, the immigration guy gave me a hard time about not having it. I wanted to yell at him that it was his government's fault, but I knew better than to argue with a guy that had the ability to make my life miserable at his pleasure.

    Oh they let me in. The guy just told me to get it taken care of. I had no idea what that was supposed to mean, since the government in Roseau had had my application for almost 6 months at that point. It was no big deal, but it is frustrating to have to deal with mindless bureaucracy like that. I was never a big fan of US customs either for the same reason, just in case you were thinking it was just a Dominican thing

    If you don't have your visa before you go home you're supposed to get a letter from MT stating that your visa is being processed. If you have the letter they eon't bother you even if you do not have your visa yet.

    Make sure to get this letter if you leave the island (even to island hop) during your first break. If you have a spouse, the same applies. Spouses/significant others will, more than likely, never get a visa. IT's a waste of $200.00.

    haha...you need a visa? i never got one the whole 16months on the island. Everytime i landed in DOM, they would ask me for a visa, i would just tell them its still being processed, and they let me go.

    Its a waste of time to worry about it.

    I know this might be a silly question, but where do you get the applications to apply for a visa? How much are they? Oh yeah, besides your shots and visa, passport, is there anything else major you have to do to before going to Dominica?
