Visa regulations are complicated, and they vary from country to country. Below are considerations as you prepare to study abroad:
  • Travel before and after a program: If you are studying in a location that requires a visa or travel permit, we advise students to avoid international travel 90 days prior to the start of the program. If you wish to add travel time before or after a program that requires a visa, we strongly recommend you consult the FSB Global Studies Office before planning your travel.
  • Applying for a passport: The passport process is currently delayed due to COVID-19 concerns. The Department of State has announced they cannot guarantee timelines for processing and issuing passports. We recommend you submit your application as soon as possible, following guidance from the Department of State. Please be aware there is no guarantee that your passport will be issued by a certain date.
  • Passport expiration date: Your passport must be valid for 6 months after the last date of your travel. If your passport expires within 6 months of the last day of your travel, you must apply to renew your passport immediately. If you do not comply with this regulation, you will not be permitted to enter the country. (Example: If you will be traveling from May 22 through June 16th, 2021, your passport must be valid through December 16th, 2021.)
  • Non-US passports: If you will travel with a non-US passport, please consult with the FSB Global Studies Office to learn more about the visa process. Traveling with a non-US passport may require a different process than traveling with a US passport.
