Apply for a passport today

Passports are the first step in international travel. In order to apply for entry into another country, you must have a passport that is valid for at least 6 months past your return date, (and some countries require up to 18 months validity). If you do not currently have a valid passport, you should apply for a new passport immediately. See the U.S. Department of State website for more details.

U.S. passport processing is currently experiencing delays due to COVID-19, with regular processing now taking up to 18 weeks. If you are thinking about studying abroad in 2022 and need to apply for a new passport, Education Abroad recommends applying as soon as possible!
