Visas for International Participants

Most participants who are not U.S. citizens or residents will need a non-immigrant visa to attend our programs in the United States. You should request the 90-day B-1/B-2 Visa rather than the F-1 Student Visa to attend the HTUP, as program participants are not considered full-time enrolled students at Harvard University, and the program is shorter than than 90 days. If you are admitted to a program, the admission letter you receive should be sufficient to obtain a visa for entry into the United States.

Canadian citizens and citizens from Visa Waiver Program countries (including Australia and New Zealand) may come to the United States without a visa if they meet certain requirements. For more information about visa and passport requirements, visit the U.S. Department of State website.
