I have a question about visa’s and vaccinations?

Question by Chelsea: I have a question about visa’s and vaccinations?
In September, I’m going on a 22 day cruise to Alaska, Russia, Japan, South Korea, and China.

I live in California, where do I go to get Visa’s for these countries? Can I do it online? And where can I find more information?

Also, what/is there any vaccinations I will need for Russia, Japan, South Korea, and China? Where can I find information on this?
Also, I can’t find my passport at the moment, if I have to order a new one, how much is it and how long does it take?

1 – the passport. You need to do this first so you can get the visa for each country needed stamped into the passport. Go to http://travel.state.gov/passport/lost/lost_849.html . You’ll need to fill out a form to report the stolen passport, and also fill out forms and apply in person for a new passport.

It could take 6-8 weeks to get the new passort, and will cost $ 100 (not including cost of pictures and the local passport processing fees if any).

#2. Visa – You should not need a visa for Japan or South Korea. You do need a visa for Russia and China. Go to the website for the consulates of Russia and China in the United States and they will tell you what you need to do to get the visa. Usually it involves an application and fees to be paid. If you are close enough to the consulate you can usually do this in person. And if you don’t live close enough, you’ll send them the paperwork, fees and your passport by courier.

#3 Immunization – double check this list from the Centers from Disease Control regarding immunizations to where you will be visiting/what you will be doing in each country. Your doctor may be able to give you these immunizations. If he/she cannot, then look for a “travel medicine clinic”

I have two students on F1 visas living with me and they have questions.?

Question by Ffion: I have two students on F1 visas living with me and they have questions.?
They are on a F1 visa with a I20 for high school. They are both 18. They are both from China and one wants to open an E-Trade account. She does not have a SSN or TIN. She has a bank account that is it.
The other wants to take a cruise to Mexico. Can he actually leave the USA?

Answer by Fred S
A cruise to Mexico would be easy enough to accomplish if the student takes a valid passport and a properly endorsed SEVIS I-20 form.

It could be a current SEVIS Form I-20 properly endorsed by the DSO for reentry if there has been no substantive change to the most recent Form I-20 information, or a new SEVIS Form I-20 if there has been a substantive change in the information on the student’s most recent Form I-20 information, such as in the case of a student who has changed the major area of study, who intends to transfer to another Service approved institution or who has advanced to a higher level of study.

He would need to be returning to the U.S. to attend school. Remember, high school students are limited to 12 months of study at a public high school.

The E-Trade question isn’t really an immigration question. A stock broker or the Social Security administration can answer that one.

All you need is a passport. In Asian countries all Asians are automatically entitiled to 21 days tourist visa. Before the 21 days expires in one country, you must get a visa to the country you travel to. Your 24 days in Asian countries won’t require you a visa since that’s 24days in 6 countries. You probably stay in one country for only 4 days..

You can use the website below. Just enter your nationality, then the destination, then click for the info and it will tell you if you need a visa. If you do, you will have to contact that country’s embassy nearest to you to apply for the visa. iam sure China requires everyone to have qa visa. also, check with the cruise company, sometimes they take care of visa requirements ( or at least help you) for their passengers.
