Passport / Visa / Flight
All students will need a passport to student teach abroad. COST participants are responsible for purchasing their own flights. If you are unsure if you are required to obtain a visa check out our visa page below.
For more information, or to find a location to apply for a passport, visit: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en.html
While many Visa requirements may seem burdensome, they are governmental regulations that must be followed. Due to constant changes in requirements and regulations, COST and your COST Coordinator will refer you to the appropriate Consulate for questions and advice. Read more about visas.
Once you have confirmed placement dates with your Overseas Coordinator (after you have received final placement confirmation), you can purchase your ticket. Read more about flights.
