I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself, your OGS advisor. My name is Rebecca Lukowski and I will be your primary contact person for all visa related questions. Please keep in mind that Yonni Walker and the rest of the Global Programs team will be your primary contact for everything non-visa related to your semester abroad.
On Tuesday, October 11 you should have received an email directly from our office. This email highlights our comprehensive visa instructions which will help walk you through the visa process, as well as our upcoming visa workshops (held on October 18, 19, 21 and 28). The visa workshops are REQUIRED for all students currently in NYC — you can sign up for a workshop here. All students should pay extra attention to the Criminal History Records requirement as these documents can be difficult to obtain.
Please keep in mind that the Czech visa process can take 3-4 months which means you need to begin immediately. To start, please upload a copy of your passport – this will enable us to request documentation from NYU Prague that is required for your visa application. If you do not have a passport, please contact OGS immediately at 212-998-4242 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will work with an advisor at OGS to ensure that you are able to arrive at your study abroad site with the appropriate documentation to study. You will receive emails from OGS, but know that I am your primary contact for immigration related questions and you can reach out to me at email@example.com or 212-998-4062
