Please note: You may be required to obtain a travel visa in order to enter the countries where we host the regional and global events. Although CFA Institute does not cover the cost to attain a passport or visa in order to travel for the Research Challenge, we will provide a sponsor letter to the local consulate or embassy for any participant advancing to one of the regional competitions. CFA Institute cannot guarantee the outcome of the visa application; ultimately, the decision to grant or deny a visa is at the discretion of the host country.
