The U.S. Embassy’s Public Affairs Section (PAS) arranges a variety of U.S. government-sponsored exchange programs, which are designed to build cultural ties and bridges of understanding between Mauritanians and Americans. These programs are intended to introduce participants to the United States and American people and culture, as well as provide them with a chance to exchange ideas with Americans. To apply to any of these programs, please check their related announcements in the Embassy Website or Facebook Page.
All programs are free of charge, with the exception of visa fees. There is no cost to apply or request assistance understanding the application process.
