Students are responsible for obtaining all required travel documentation. A passport and a visa are required for travel to China. Passport applications are available through the U.S. Postal Service. United States citizens will also need a visa to travel to China. The easiest way to obtain a visa is to work through a Chinese travel agency. Obtain your passport and visa early due to long delays. Passport and visa information must be provided 30 days prior to the start of the program.
