Passports and Visas
A valid passport is required to enter most foreign countries. U.S. citizens can find the passport application and instructions on the U.S. Department of State's website. Non-U.S. citizens should consult their home country's Embassy for rules and regulations on passports and visas.
One Card Services offers passport photo services on campus. The cost is $8 for two photos and can be paid for via Spidercard account, cash (exact change), or check (payable to University of Richmond). Allow 10-15 minutes for processing time.

Some students will be required to obtain a student visa in order to enter the host country. Your study abroad advisor will tell you if you are required to obtain a visa and, if so, will give you further instructions. The visa is usually a stamp imprinted on a back page of your passport.
