TRAVEL PLANNING

Planning your travels can be one of the most important parts of your trip. You need to be sure to get everything booked and planned in advance so that you can relax once you get abroad. Below are some good websites that may help you in planning your travels. Remember that Tennessee Tech University offers up to $1,000 in travel reimbursement for your flight to the host country and back. See this link for more information on the airfare reimbursement.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS AND ASSISTANCE

It is extremely important that you get the proper documents before you depart on your study abroad program. You must get a passport no matter where you are going. It can take anywhere from 4 to 5 weeks to get a passport so you need to plan accordingly. Not everyone is required to get a visa, but if you are going to be in a country for more than 90 days you must have a visa. The visa process is a much longer process so you need to give yourselves a few months to get the visa. See the links below to learn how to get your passport and visa. Also, it is beneficial to educate yourself on where the U.S. Embassy is nearest to where you will be staying in the host country, you can find this information in the third link below.
