Services at Michigan Tech IPS for Traveling Abroad

Are you planning to travel abroad anytime soon? If so, IPS has a few services to ensure your trip goes smoothly.

The first step towards international travel is obtaining a valid passport. IPS offers passport and visa photos right in our office, located in 200 Administration Building, during normal business hours.

The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 10 and under. You may pay for your passport photo through our online store. Bring the receipt to our office when you come in to have your photo taken.

Along with your passport, many countries also require a visa for entry. For your convenience, we have partnered with CIBTvisas, a travel visa and passport company with more than 50 years experience, to assist the Michigan Tech community in applying for and securing required visas at a discounted rate.

To check if your destination country requires a visa, go to the Michigan Tech portal on the CIBTvisas website. You can also contact CIBTvisas by phone at 1-800-929-2428 and reference the Michigan Tech account number 103930.
