Passports and Visas

Passports

All students are required to have a valid passport to participate in Coggin College of Business study abroad programs. Please plan ahead – passport processing may take several weeks. US citizens should refer to the U.S. Department of State webpage for instructions.

 

Note: All students are required to have a passport that will be valid for at least 6 months after the last day of their study abroad program.  Passport costs are not included in short-term Coggin program fees.

 

Visas

Visas are documents issued by the country you are visiting to permit entry into that nation. Whether you need a visa to enter a country depends on both the country you are visiting and the country whose passport you hold. If you study abroad in multiple countries, you might need multiple visas and/or multiple-entry visas. Please check with your program leader for specific information on travel plans and their visa implications. Fortunately, US passport-holders do not need visas for many countries, unless they study abroad for a full semester. Students are required to individually obtain any necessary visa(s) for study abroad prior to departure. Please visit the U.S. Department of State webpage or the individual host country's Embassy web page. Many visa applications must be made in person or several months prior to departure. Please plan ahead!
