Don’t let passport delays keep you from exploring the world!

Need a new passport? Don’t wait––passport processing times are significantly delayed, so apply as soon as possible. Apply using expedited processing to ensure you have your passport information far in advance of your departure (you’ll need it for visas and program registrations).

 

If you aren't sure if you need to renew your passport, check the expiration date and make sure it is valid for 6 months after the end date of your study abroad program. Remember, adult passports are valid for 10 years. If you are considering going abroad in 2022, we suggest applying for or renewing your passport as soon as possible.

For information on how to apply for or renew your passport visit the U.S. Department of State passport application page.
