Traveling to and from Asia:
Students are responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel to Chengdu, China and home from Seoul, South Korea. Please do not make travel arrangements until you have been officially accepted into the program. Travel between program locations will be arranged for students and is included in the cost of the program. Students will fly with the group from Chengdu to Xi’an, take a train from Xi’an to Beijing, and a flight from Beijing to Seoul, but these arrangements will be made by program administrators.
U.S. Department of State consular information sheets for China and South Korea are available on the Department of State’s Website (www.travel.state.gov). Please check it periodically for updates. In the unlikely event that China or South Korea is declared an “area of instability” by the U.S. government before or during the trip, or if the U.S. issues a “travel warning,” students will be permitted to withdraw from the program and will receive a full refund of moneys paid to MC Law.
The U.S. Department of the State recommends (but does not require) U.S. citizens to register trips with them. MC Law will register all participants with the State Department prior to the program.
Visas are required for travel to China. MC Law program administrators will assist you in obtaining the visa. Visas are not needed for travel to Korea.
Travel and health insurance is strongly recommended for students participating in the program. There are various providers with the cost, depending on the coverage purchased, ranging from approximately $100 to $200. Travel Guard (http://www.travelguard.com) is one such provider, as is iNext (www.inext.com). Your policy should, at a minimum, cover medical expenses, travel interruption/cancellation and repatriation.
