letter from their host institution as this process can be lengthy.

students website

UWL DOES NOT arrange student visas. Students are required to independently
arrange for their student visa and need to be aware that this is a TIME
requirement that will include an additional out-of-pocket cost.

UDLAP recommends students arrive at Mexico City airport. A group of
students from the buddy system will go to Mexico City airport to meet int'l
students and help them get on the bus to Puebla. Once in Puebla, domestic
students also greet int’l students at the bus station and help them get into a taxi
to campus. If students choose to arrive at Puebla airport, they are responsible for
arriving to campus. In this case, their only option would be a taxi for about $350 MXN.
