Note those with passports that do not meet these requirements may not be allowed to enter and could be sent back to the United States at their own expense. For full entry and exit requirements, visit the U.S. Department of State link below.

Note: If you intend to participate in another study, intern or travel program immediately beforehand or afterword, make sure to take this program into account when figuring out your visa situation.
