Important Passport and Medical Information
If you do not yet have a passport valid through the end of February 2024, apply for one now, especially if your program requires a visa. (Many countries require your passport to be valid for at least six months or longer beyond the dates of your program.) We encourage you to visit the U.S. State Department’s passport website for more information. Due to delays in processing passports, the U.S. State Department warns that passport applications may take up to 18 weeks to process, so please apply for or renew your passport as soon as possible.
If you have not had a medical physical since May 2022, make an appointment as quickly as possible.
If you have not already, please login to the Application Portal to submit your confirmation materials, including the following documents.
