Airport

The US Embassy (or other diplomatic mission) working with you will supply your visa and other required documentation to enter the United States. Your airline tickets will be provided by another institution, Georgetown University. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with them concerning questions about your travel to the US, though a member of the UD staff will also be happy to assist you if possible,. If you have any doubt about your documents or have concerns about your tickets, please contact the Embassy immediately.

Most participants will arrive at the Dulles International Airport, located approximately 50 km northwest of Washington DC, directly from overseas; others will first arrive elsewhere in the United States before continuing. You will process through customs and immigration inspection at whatever airport you first arrive into the United States. This process is carried out by U. S. Customs and Boarder Protection. Before you depart, you should refer to the Institute's page at http://www.udel.edu/global/outreach/mepi.html

Once you arrive at the airport, it is extremely important that you deplane quickly, then proceed directly to claim your baggage, then through inspection as these tasks may take some time. After being admitted into the United States, proceed directly to the international arrival terminal where you will be met by a member of the MEPI program staff.
