In the sample visa application for item 2.2, we instruct all students to select ‘multiple entries valid for 6 months from date of issue.’ Checking this box does not guarantee that you will get multiple entries. The decision as to whether you will get one entry or multiple entries is solely up to the consulate officer issuing the visa. The staff at OGS has no control or influence in this decision.
If you are granted a single entry on your visa, please keep in mind that the staff at NYU Shanghai should be able to assist you in obtaining at least one additional entry once you arrive in Shanghai. If you would like more information or have any concerns about your travel plans, please contact Aaron Reynolds (firstname.lastname@example.org).
