Airfare is not included in the price of the program. Each participant will be responsible for their own reservation, and payment will be made directly to an airline or travel agency (not to OSU or UFPR).

More information about IPAST travel to Brazil will be provided once a participant has been accepted. Applicants are asked not to purchase their airline tickets until they are aware of these specific arrival and departure parameters.


U.S. citizens do not need a visa to travel to Brazil. Updated information about travel to Brazil from the US Department of State is available here.

The program administrators reserve the right to alter all dates, destinations, and program details.
