Registration Refunds Due to a Visa Denial:
Visa processing may require long lead times. Please plan accordingly! We highly recommend you apply for the U.S. visa three to four months in advance. If your visa has been denied and you would like to be considered for registration refund, please make sure you have either an official denial document from the U.S. consulate or a stamped copy of your application form, showing the date when you applied and the date your visa application has been denied. Not all requests for a refund may be approved.
