Getting Started Step Seven - Passport and Visa



If you do not already have a passport, apply as soon as possible! It can take up to six weeks, and remember, you cannot leave the U.S. without one.   Visit to learn more about how to apply for a passport.

Be sure to ask if a Visa or residence permit is required and what steps you need to complete in order to obtain one. This is very important since many countries have strict requirements, and this may take time.
