If you don't already have a valid passport, apply for one immediately.
If your passport is lost or stolen, report it immediately to the nearest passport agency or by calling the Department of State at +1 877-487-2778 (TTY 1-888-874-7793).
If the loss occurs while you are abroad, notify the nearest U.S. consulate. Theft of a passport should also be reported to the local police.
A visa is official permission to enter a specific country and is granted by that country’s government. MU students who plan to study abroad should check the visa requirements for the countries they plan to visit by contacting the nearest consulate for that country or consulting the embassy website. Some visas are free and some are not. The application process may take several weeks for each visa, so start early. If you need photos for your visa application, you can obtain them at the International Center.
