Before a U.S. Embassy will grant a visa, you must prove that you will have sufficient money to meet all your expenses while studying in the United States. You must explain the source of your funds and guarantee that you will receive them while at National Aviation Academy.
When you leave your country, you must have enough money to:
- Pay for traveling expenses to NAA
- Pay fees for your first term
- Meet living expenses until more money reaches you
- Pay the return fare to your home

Another opportunity would be to check with your Ministry of Education regarding any assistantships or your local bank for information on student loans.
