Passport & Visa Information

Passport​

A passport is an official government document that validates a traveler’s identity and country of citizenship.  Students regardless of nationality, who are interested in studying abroad MUST have a passport valid for at least 6 months after their return date in order to do so.  For U.S. citizens, information on applying for a passport is available on the U.S. Department of State website.

Visa

A visa, different from a passport, is a government document placed in the individual's passport which authorizes them to request entry into the host country for a limited duration of time for business, pleasure, study, or other.

*U.S Citizens are not required to obtain a visa to enter Greece if the visit is less than 90 days. Non-U.S. citizens should contact the Study Abroad Office for more information about their specific case. *


International Students

F-1 international students attending Broward College who are interested in participating in a study abroad program should first speak with a Designated School Official (DSO) through the International Student Services Office to discuss their immigration status and any special circumstances they may need to consider prior to applying for the program.
