Spring break is coming up soon, so it’s time to start preparing for any international travel plans that you have. If you are an international student who is traveling outside the U.S. during spring break, make sure to have a valid travel signature on your I-20 or DS-2019 from the last 12 months in order to return to the U.S. If you need a new signature on your immigration document, take advantage of our TRAVEL SIGNATURE DRIVE.
If you cannot come to FAC 330 on March 5, 2018 between 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm or if you do not have space left on your current I-20 or DS-2019 for another travel signature, then you may visit ISSS during our times for International Student Walk-in Services. No appointment is needed if you come to the International Office for a travel signature during our Walk-in Service hours, however, we do require that you come only during the listed times. Note: If you are a sponsored student, then you would need to schedule an appointment to meet with your sponsored student advisor.
Travel Signature Information
The travel validation signature can be found on page 2 of the I-20 and on page 1 (bottom, right corner) of the DS-2019. The most recent signature must have been within the last 12 months (6 months if you are on Post Completion OPT or STEM OPT) from the date you reenter the U.S.
General Travel and Visa Information
Additionally, if you have any questions about traveling, please see our travel advisory. If you plan to apply for a new visa over the break, see our visa handout for further information.
Is it March 2nd or 3rd, because Spring Break will be over before the 23rd?
International Student & Scholar Services says
The correct date is what is listed on the flyer, March 5th. The text has been updated to match it. Sorry for the confusion!
