Health and Safety

All students will travel abroad with GeoBlue international health insurance, which is purchased by the College. Students will receive an electronic and hard copy of their insurance card, and should a doctor's visit (commonly referred to as hospital visit abroad) be necessary, they should reach out to their on-site study abroad coordinator/resident director. Students will be required to contact GeoBlue prior to their appointment, unless of course in the case of an emergency, and should follow the procedures outlined here. 

Students are also encouraged to register themselves in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service provided by the U.S. government to U.S. citizens traveling abroad. STEP allows Americans abroad to receive updates from the nearest embassy or consulate and allows the Department of State to better assist you in an emergency. 

For additional health and safety tips, please visit our Health & Safety link on our main page. 


Student Visas
All students studying abroad in New Zealand must obtain a student visa prior to traveling, and Endicott students are offered guidance through ISA. Students should contact their program's Site Specialist for details on how to begin the visa process. Please note that ISA does not obtain visas on the student's behalf, rather they will offer assistance and follow-up throughout the process. 

Students may apply for their visa for free if using the eVisa online system. If, however, a student chooses to, or is required to submit their passport for processing, he or she will accrue a cost of approximately $70 processing and return.
