The International Visitor Leadership

The emphasis of the International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) program is to increase mutual understanding between the U.S. and other countries through communication at the personal and professional levels.

Through short-term visits to the United States, current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of fields experience this country firsthand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts.  Professional meetings reflect the participants’ professional interests. The participants are selected and nominated by officials of the U.S. Embassy.
