Passports

Students will need passports for travel.  Your passport number will be requested in January in order to finalize the airline tickets.  Apply early as this process may take several months. An official site for a passport application is travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html

Baggage

Due to space constraints, participants will be limited to one small carry-on bag 42" total (height plus width plus depth) and one suitcase 59" total per person.  The weight restrictions are limited to 15 pounds and 40 pounds to meet the flight requirements in Europe.  Please pack so that you can carry everything yourself (there won't be any porters!).

Health

Participants should consider whether they are physically and emotionally capable of engaging in a rigorous travel schedule. We advise participants to have a physical check-up before registering for the program.  Brigham Young University - Idaho cannot be responsible for any illness that would occur on the tour. Persons with heart disease, high blood pressure, or other physical impairments that could hinder them from normal participation in group travel must contact the tour director prior to submitting an application.

Students With Disabilities

While the university is committed to providing a working and learning atmosphere that reasonably accommodates qualified persons with disabilities, our itinerary is strenuous and travel conditions in Europe are beyond our control. Often these circumstances do not accommodate individuals with severe physical limitations.   If you have a disability that could hinder successful participation in this program, please contact the program director before applying.
