*note: students admitted in Phase II (on April 1) should expect to receive this form by the end of next week, and should fill it out by the due date indicated on the form*
On Friday, March 29th all students admitted in Phase I received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the required Passport Inquiry Form. Students are required to complete this form by Thursday, April 4th. The Office of Global Services will use this information to assist you with your visa application.
Your passport must be valid for six months after the end of your program abroad or through June 2014.
If you don’t have a passport that is valid through the required period after the end of the program, apply for one today! US citizens should check out travel.state.gov for more information. We suggest that you request “expedited processing” (2 – 3 week turnaround time) to allow plenty of time to apply for your student visa. If you do not have two weeks to spare, you can go to the US Passport Agency to request a passport the same day. For a Passport Agency near you and for more information, please refer to their website. Prior to going to the Passport Agency, you must contact the Office of Global Services to obtain relevant materials.
