WHO NEEDS A VISA?
All Non-US citizens are required to be on a student training visa to complete a course of flight training in the US. NAC is approved to issue M-1 training visas to overseas students training here in the US. The INS will require proof that funds are available for the full course of training, and that you have a permanent address to return to in your home country. We will provide all necessary information and steps to obtain your visa after Enrollment.
WHO DOESN’T NEED A VISA?
Licence holders who are just coming to the USA to build hours, refresh/renew their licence or to do a skills test are not required to hold a student visa and may enter the country on the Visa Waiver Program ( if a passport holder of a member country) or a B type visa ( if your country is not part of the Visa waiver program), as long as you are not required to gain a license to fly (the conversion offered by the FAA office is not considered flight training). Persons entering on a Visa Waiver or B type visa will be required to hold a return air ticket. A new requirement for Visa Waiver entry is to complete ESTA.
