Passports, Visas and Immunizations

All applicants must send a READABLE copy of a valid and signed passport to their campus UMAIE Board Member as soon as possible but no later than October 20, 2018. Passports must be valid at least six (6) months beyond your return date. If you do not have your passport by October 20, 2018, late fees will apply and/or possible cancellation from course may be required.

If your course requires a visa it will be stated in the course description. A country specific visa application will be sent to you 2-3 months prior to departure. Visa fees and processing for U.S. citizens is provided by UMAIE. If you do not have your passport by the October 20, 2018, and a visa is required for your course, you will be responsible for obtaining a visa on your own so that we do not hold up the group’s visa process. Students holding passports from other countries are responsible for obtaining their own visa.

Information regarding recommended and/or needed immunizations can be found at the CDC website: If you are traveling to a destination that requires an immunization, the UMAIE Secretariat will inform you in a timely manner. Additional information regarding passports, visas and immunizations is available from your campus UMAIE Board Member.
