For Students

Greetings from the United Arab Emirates Consulate in Los Angeles!  Welcome to the United States.

The UAE Consulate extends its warmest welcome to the hundreds of UAE students who are in the United States in pursuit of higher education and professional training. The UAE Consulate is a resource for students studying in the Western US area, offering information and updates. In addition, the UAE Embassy in Washington, DC, provides several services to assist each student in navigating his/her path to academic success through its Cultural Division.

The Cultural Division provides information on US immigration regulations, accreditation, authentication, US institutions and programs approved by the Ministry Education and other useful information.

Transitioning to life and study in a foreign country is not easy, but remember that UAE students are not alone. The UAE Consulate will help ensure that time spent studying in the United States is rewarding and successful, both personally and academically.

If you are a UAE citizen studying in the United States, but are not sponsored by any governmental department or private agency, and would like to keep in touch through the Cultural Division, we advise you to complete the Private Student Registration Form. The Cultural Division retains your information and works with the Consulate in order to better assist you in the event of an emergency and obtain a travel document to the UAE. As an academic resource, we will authenticate your documents and advise you on the accreditation of an institution or a program.

For further information regarding all information and services provided by the Cultural Division of the UAE Embassy in Washington, DC, please visit

We wish all of you a very happy time and successful years wherever you are in the United States.
