University Partners with New Service to Assist in Obtaining Visas and Passports at Discounted Rate
The Office of Global Safety and Support, within the Division of Campus Safety and Emergency Services, has announced a partnership with CIBT Visas, the largest and most well-established travel visa and passport company in the world.
“Securing a visa for international travel can be very complicated for some countries,” says Seth Tucker, director of global safety and support. “We are very pleased to partner with CIBT to offer all University constituents professional support at a discounted rate.”
University students, faculty and staff traveling abroad will receive discounted rates for assistance securing a visa or passport through CIBT Visas’ dedicated Syracuse University web portal. To access this service, visit cibtvisas.com/Syracuse. For those who need accommodations because a web portal or document submission poses a challenge, access to a concierge service is available online at cibtvisas.com/105091 or by calling 866.247.7599 and providing the account code 105091.
Both visa and passport services may be paid for with departmental or personal funds as appropriate (see the Syracuse University Travel Policy). In addition, University students, faculty and staff are welcome to use the discounted service for business or personal travel.
