All students should expect to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to travel. Once a country is open to tourists, the status of a program still depends on your home college’s travel policies related to COVID-19.
Students traveling on WCCCSA-sponsored study abroad programs travel as tourists, and do not need a student visa. US Citizens are allowed to travel to most WCCCSA prigram locations for up to 90 days without a visa. However, international students may need to apply for a tourist visa for this program.
