  • Visa Waiver Programme - It is an initiative of the USA Government, under which a visitor is allowed the citizens from 38 participating countries to stay up to 90 days without a visa.
  • ESTA Authorisation - To enter California under VWP, travellers must have an approval through the process of Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) that involves furnishing specified details of traveller(s) before they hop aboard their flights to California, the educational hub of the USA.
  • Student Health Insurance - Most of the popular universities in California offer health insurance for their students. Caltech offers comprehensive health insurance called as Cardinal Care to meet students’ healthcare expenses. This policy covers all medical emergencies for students during their course of stay. However, student travel insurance offered by CALTECH can prove to be an expensive proposition for students from India and many other parts of the world.
