The university guarantees accommodation for exchange students.
After admission is granted, USIL starts the process for the "Student Exchange Visa" (SEV), and the university has the primarily responsibility for processing these applications. Once the visa is granted, the student must collect the visa at the closest Peruvian Embassy or Consulate General. The closest Consulate General is located in Stockholm, but it is also possible to select another location on this map: http://www.consulado.pe/paginas/Inicio.aspx.
