requirments for visa to write nclex

  1. Hello nurses,
    Please as an international nurse,preparing to go to any of the locations to write the Godforsaken exam,what do i present at the embassy be it british,american,hongkong etc as a proof that am going for an exam?is it just the ATT apart from my bank statement and job letter? or is there any other proof that has the exam date and location written BOLDLY on it?
    Because the ATT doesnt bear the location and date on it,so i need to know what am to take there,if the ATT is all i need,pls tell me.
    A quick response would be highly appreciated.remember,i live in Dominica.if any one knows the embassy that wont stress me,pls do tell me.bye:chuckle

    hi there! nurses from the philippines do not need a visa to go to hongkong where they sit for nclex.

    I understand that hongkong immigration policy does not require a visa from most nationalities. All Philippine nurses need to show at the airport are their passport (still valid for the next six months) and return flight ticket. No need to show bank certification or job letters.

    The ATT and signed passport must also be shown to pearson's test center personnel in hongkong.

    You might want to search online hongkong's travel bureau for more information on travel requirements for citizens from your country.

    In case you have not checked the hk test schedule yet, it's usually full for the next 2 months but slots open every day. You just have to keep checking the schedule online.

    I hope this helps.

    From Nigeria, ther closest and easiest location for you is London, England, not Hong Kong. Also much easier to get a date there.

    Just contact the British Embassy in your country to find out the requirements

    If you live in Dominica , then you'd most likely come to the US to take the exam. If you don't already have a US visa then you would need to take to the interview everything you have to prove you're scheduled for an exam. In addition to what you've stated that you're taking with you , I would also print a copy of the appointment date set with Pearson-Vue. The US wants to ensure that you will return to Dominica after brief stay, so take as much documentation that you have to prove ties to Dominica eg. car note, mortgage etc. Good Luck. HTH

    I have not seen the US issue a visa for a nurse to come to the US to take the NCLEX exam in quite a few years. Especially not since there are centers all over the world now.

    That actually will cause a red flag, think about it. If they are coming to the US to sit for that exam, it means that their goal is to move to the US. Any many come and stay, and they do not like that.

    Pick another country to test in................

    The US Embassy is not required to issue a visa because you wish to take an exam, check with Puerto Rico, they may have a special three day visa, like they offer for Saipan. But US Embassy is not going to grant a visa to take the NCLEX exam on the mainland.


    They have not for some years, and testing for NCLEX is not a viable reason for them.

    I've travelled in the Caribbean before and even though you might be able to get a visa to take it in Miami,it might be easier to get one for St. Thomas or Puerto Rico. Also compare the costs (including the accomodations and airfare) and make your decision.

    You can easily get a three day visa to a US territory to write the exam. Trying to get one to the US for the sole purposes of testing is impossible. Your friends probably listed they were coming for a visit to see family, but to list that you are coming for the exam, is almost guaranteed immediate denial. There have been many immigration issues coming up lately, also when did your firends come to the US to write the exam? I do not think that it was this year, based on just taking the exam, and listing that as the reason on the application.

    Your choice, but if you get denied, you will have issues ever getting to the US on a tourist visa in the future.

    Yes, Puerto Rico is a territory, but you also mentioned Miami, which is on the mainland. There are many from all over that read these forums.

    Same way that many test in Saipan, it does not require a US visa, only the three day that is easy to write.
