Visa Sponsorships

RVC is able to sponsor citizens from countries other than the United States wishing to study and serve as students, or faculty/staff members at RVC. This facility is reserved for very serious practitioners of bhakti-yoga who have full faith in Srila Prabhupada's system of devotional service as practiced in ISKCON and have served for at least three years in ISKCON centers abroad.

RVC is striving to become exemplary in rendering and teaching others pure devotional service, therefore those who tend to mix their devotional service with karma (sense gratification) and jnana (speculation) will not be eligible for sponsorship.

Candidates wishing to participate in RVC's International Visa Sponsorship Program should follow the procedure for admission outlined in the section of ISKCON Transfer Students above. In addition candidates must do the following:

•Candidates must agree in writing to a minimum commitment of two-years' service and study at the RVC.

•Candidates recognize that if the two-year minimum commitment is not fulfilled, their Visa will be nullified by RVC and the candidate member will have to immediately return to the country from which they came.

•Candidates must agree to register their passport, upon arrival, with the RVC administrative office until required.

•Candidates must understand that RVC is not in any way responsible for travel arrangements or expenses to and from Kansas City, even in a case where a candidate is disallowed to reside at RVC.
