Please visit travel.state.gov for more information about obtaining a new passport or renewing an old passport. You are encouraged to apply for or renew your passport as soon as possible so that any delays with your passport or visa application will not impact your ability to arrive on-time for the study abroad program. Passport applications and renewals are estimated to take between 6-8 weeks. Apply or renew ASAP.
Please note that if you were issued a passport before your 16th birthday and this is the first passport that you will recieve with 10-year validity, you will need to apply in-person at a Passport Acceptance Facility. If you were older than the age of 16 when your most recent 10-year validity passport was issued and are eligible to complete a passport renewal, you may apply for a renewal per mail.
Find a Passport Acceptance Facility near you.
