Travel and Visas

If you are traveling to Wharton from outside the United States, please note:

Before selecting a program date, please read the new Visa, Passport, and International Travel Information below. This will help you plan time to apply for any updated documents you need to ensure smooth travel during your visit to the US.

As a result of increased security measures, travel to the US has changed for many visitors coming from overseas. To help you prepare for your trip to Wharton, please:

  • Establish whether the country from which you are traveling participates in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). There are less-restrictive US policies that apply specifically and only to these countries. The US Department of State maintains a complete list of eligible VWP countries and guidelines.
  • If you are traveling from a country that is not a member of the VWP, you’ll want to review this information on non-immigrant visas.
  • In general, it is best to check with the US Embassy in your own city and/or country to make sure you have all the information and documents you need. This list of all US Embassies can be a starting point for identifying your contact.
  • From any point of origin, always begin the process of preparing to come to the US as early as you can; if possible, a six-month lead time is ideal.

COVID-19 Precautions

Wharton requires participants in any in-person (face-to-face) on-campus program to be fully vaccinated and to show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test before coming to campus. For all on-campus programs lasting longer than a week, Wharton will require weekly PCR testing for all participants on a schedule to be determined later for each program.

Wharton reserves the right to disinvite, limit participation from, and/or expel from any in-person program any participant that refuses or is otherwise unable to comply with the foregoing.

Please review our full policy before making your travel arrangements.
