International students

Students from countries other than the United States, who are planning to come to the U.S. for FAA Aircraft Dispatcher training, must enter on an M-1 student visa.

The Institute of Flight Operations and Dispatch will complete a U.S. Immigration form known as the SEVIS I-20 and the SEVIS tracking form I-901.  These forms then will be forwarded to the student.

IFOD’s US Immigration I-20 & I-901 processing fee is US $750.

This payment of the SEVIS fees may be wire transferred. Wire transfer instructions are provided in our brochure, please contact IFOD at
