International visitors add greatly to the U.S. cultural, educational and economic life. We are proud of our tradition of welcoming visitors, with secure borders and open doors. Nationals of most countries, including Chad, must have a visa to travel to the U.S. The most common types of visa are Business/Tourist Visas and Student Visas. The type of visa needed is defined by immigration law and is determined by your purpose of travel. The consular officer will confirm which type of visa you need when you apply.
