Entry Requirements


All international travel requires a valid passport. The passport must be valid for the entire duration of your stay. In addition, your passport must have at least six months’ remaining validity on your passport from the date of your planned return. If you do not have a passport, schedule your appointment at the UT Tyler Passport Acceptance Facility.


Students can enter India on tourist visas and extend their visas in-country, if necessary. The cost of the visa and the extension is the responsibility of each student. Should a non-U.S. citizen need a visa for India, they must refer to their home country's consulate directly for application instructions and requirements. Ultimately, it is the program participant's responsibility to apply, pay for, and secure their own visa.


None required.
