Passports and Visas


Ensure you have an updated passport that is valid for a minimum of 3 months (but we suggest a minimum of 6 months) past the program end date and has at least one open page for a visa stamp if needed.

If you don't have a valid passport or at least one empty page, please apply for a renewal as soon as you know you'll be traveling on a program as delays still occur. United States (US) citizens can go to the Department of State website to find instructions on applying for new or renewed passports via their online system OR find an in-person location


Navigating the Visa Application Process


It is each student's responsibility to be aware of and assess if a visa is required to participate in a program.

Although we try to help with these requirements as much as possible, each student's situation is unique. We encourage you to do your due diligence and research to determine that you have all the necessary documents for entry and/or visa applications.
