International Students

Visa information for international students participating in a program in the U.S.

Students and their families are responsible for obtaining any required Visas. Due to the brief period of time of our programs, international students should obtain a short stay TOURIST visa, (not a STUDENT visa), from the American Embassy or Consulate in their home country. 

Payment procedure for international students participating in a program in the U.S.

All international students living outside the U.S. and attending a program in the U.S. will be assessed a non-refundable $250 International Registration Fee. This fee includes health/medical insurance coverage (with deductible) while attending MDP, and airport meet and assist/airport transfers in the U.S. 

All international payments must be made as follows (credit cards are only accepted for the initial $3,250 deposit - $250 International Registration Fee and $3,000 Program Deposit):

1. By check drawn on a U.S. bank in U.S. funds payable to Musiker Discovery Programs, Inc. (MDP) (i.e. international money order) or
2. By wire transfer to include the following information:

  • This information will be forwarded upon full completion of your application.
  • Bank charges and/or wire transfer fees incurred are the responsibility of the student/parent. MDP will credit only the actual payment in U.S. dollars credited to MDP by The First National Bank of Long Island.
