Traveling on a Student Visa

Do you need a travel signature?


Depending on where and when you travel to, as an F-1 or J-1 student or scholar, you may need to visit the ISSI before you leave the US to get a new travel signature on your I-20 or DS-2019.

Please use the menus below to help determine whether or not you need to come to the ISSI to have any documents signed before you travel.

If you do need a Travel Signature, please know that instead of taking your I-20 to the ISSI and needing to wait for up to 5 business days to get a signature, you can attend one of our Travel Signature Sessions below, and if everything is in order you will receive your travel signature on the spot!

If you will be leaving the US for more than four months as part of an approved co-op or study abroad, then you will need a new I-20 or DS-2019, and you will need to complete and submit to the ISSI a copy of our Request for an I-20/DS-2019 for Continuing Students form.
