RIS can provide students in the Hebrew Language program with the required visa documentation for only one semester. Students in this program will NOT be able to extend their student visas for additional semesters.
Please note, the documentation that we can provide does not extend to family members of the student. As such, family members will need to apply for visas independently, without documentation from RIS to support their application.
