Visas and Travel Documents
Do I need a visa?
- Semester or Year-long programs: Depending on the country and your country of citizenship, students who study abroad for a semester or more (i.e. 90+ days) may need a visa or a residence permit. You MUST check the specific country's entry/exit requirements.
- Short-term/Faculty-led programs: Students who study abroad on short-term programs MUST check the country's entry requirements. You may or may not need a visa depending on the length of your stay and your country of citizenship.
