Travel, Health, and Safety Abroad
The U.S. Department of State, a service of the Bureau of Consular Affairs, has a newly designed Students Abroad website for information specific to students interested in traveling abroad. You can also find out more about how to research your destination, prescription medicines, what to do if your passport is lost/stolen, and more. On this website, you will find information on the necessary Travel Documents to go abroad, and how to Apply for a Passport.
International insurance coverage is included on all faculty-led study abroad programs. Students participating on a Lamar University exchange program will also have access to coverage, but will have to pay separately as there is not a program fee for exchange programs. Check out the Insurance Information page for more details on student coverage abroad.
Do not leave the webpage without visiting Students Abroad to find out more about how to Research Your Destination, health and prescriptions abroad, scholarships, what to do if your passport is lost or stolen, and more.
BE PREPARED: plan ahead and pack smart, plan ahead for illnesses or injuries during your trip, know what to do if you become sick or injured on your trip, know and share important information about your trip.
Do not leave the CDC website without watching the "Travelers' Health CDC-TV" Videos.
