Requirements for South Africa
To enter South Africa you will need a passport valid for at least six months after your stay ends. You also must have at least two facing blank pages in your passport. If you do not, you can be turned back at the airport. The immigration authorities will almost certainly ask you the purpose of your visit. We will provide you with a letter indicating you are enrolled in the SU-Mandela Institute program. You will also be asked for a local address, for which you can use the Wits address or your B&B:
Wits Law School
Private Bag X3
WITS 2050 Johannesburg
The immigration authorities may also ask you to show that you have a return ticket and that you have some means of support (i.e., credit cards, travelers checks, etc.) For U.S. citizens staying in South Africa for ninety days or less, a visa has not been required. In the past U.S. students and faculty have not required a visa, although the U.S. Embassy in Pretoria recently informed us that an academic was turned away at the airport for not having a visa. You should thus check with the South African embassy or consulate to confirm that you do not require a visa. The phone number for the South African embassy in Washington DC is 202.966.1650; embassy Web site: www.saembassy.org; and South African Department of Home Affairs Web site: http://www.home-affairs.gov.za/visa_detail.asp.
Depending on your country of origin, you may require a visa to South Africa. You should check the Web site of the Department of Home Affairs of South Africa, where information on what countries are exempt from the visa requirements, and the application procedure for visas, can be found at http://www.home-affairs.gov.za/visa_detail.asp.
Requirements for Spain
U.S. State Department travel information for Spain are available in this link.

Detailed flight schedule.
All students participating in Seattle University School of Law foreign study programs are required to submit this information in conjunction with the insurance plan.
If you are participating in summer study-abroad programs (South Africa or Spain), you are automatically covered. The premium is included in the program fee.
If you plan to extend coverage after the study-abroad programs, or if you are participating in international internships, you are required to purchase this insurance plan. You can purchase this plan through Seattle University at the rate $40.65/month. The travel medical insurance covers medical (up to $500,000) and global travel assistance insurance in emergency cases such as medical evacuation, family bedside, and repatriation of remains. These are features often not included in regular insurance. See the insurance FAQ for details.
To arrange coverage, contact Junsen Ohno, International Programs Administrator by phone at 206.398.4283 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
If you are a U.S. citizen, you are encouraged to register with the U.S. Department of State. "Travel registration is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. Registration allows you to record information about your upcoming trip abroad that the Department of State can use to assist you in case of an emergency."
