If space is still available, we will send you a registration confirmation and invoice.
Once we send you the invoice, you will have 7 days to make the payment by bank wire transfer.

VISAS, PERMISSION to TRAVEL, and OTHER INFORMATION
A student visa (F-1, I-20 form) is not required for any KEF USA Summer Camp program. Participants can travel on a tourist (B-2) visa or a Visa Waiver program.
It is the responsibility of the student's parents/guardians to contact their local American Embassy, consulate, or other appropriate office, in good time in order to obtain any visas/entry documents required for visiting the USA. If the visa is refused, please send us a copy of the visa refusal letter.
Please be aware of your country's requirements on the laws regarding unaccompanied children travelling abroad. A consent document or notarized letter may have to be produced upon departure to prove that the child has the permission of both parents or guardians to travel.
Confirmation of Participation
For minors traveling alone or in groups without a group leader, we will provide a KEF formal letter of acceptance. This entry document describes the purpose of the visit and can be presented at the first port of entry into the U.S. if requested by immigration.
Our normal cancellation charges apply if notification of a failed visa application is received less than 60 days before the course begins. If the visa refusal letter is received more than 60 days before the course begins, a full refund will be given less a non-refundable application fee of $250 and bank processing charges.
In the event that a student contracts Covid-19 and is unable to travel, a credit will be issued for them to attend the program at a later time. Please notify us as soon as possible.
