With the challenges of the visa process, AFS-USA will not purchase an international ticket until a student has received their visa and/or there is notice that US citizens are permitted to enter the country. As a result, international flight details may not be received by students until a week prior to departure.
AFS-USA will continue with the standard travel notification process that will be emailed to students and their families. Students will also be able to view their flights on their dashboard. AFS-USA will also email the international e-ticket receipt to students and their families prior to departure. This email will include any travel/country specific details they will need. AFS volunteers can continue to view the international travel/travel notification in a student’s travel tab.
If you have questions regarding international travel for students, please contact AFS.Sending.Travel@afsusa.org.
