The strength of the United States derives from its diversity. This diversity is found in the splendid array of immigrants who have chosen to make America home. They have brought with them new cultures, ideas, and inspiration on which the United States thrives. Each year we also welcome millions of visitors, coming for business or pleasure. Their contacts with American businesses and institutions allows important cultural and economic exchanges to develop.
The United States places particular importance on the hundreds of thousands of foreign students who come to study at our colleges and universities. Whichever case may apply to you, the Consular Section of the Embassy will work with you to facilitate this travel in accordance with American law.
