Travel and Re-entry to the U.S.: Information and Procedures for F and J Students and Scholars

Friday, April 5th, 2PM - 3:30 PM, International Center Conference Room
Understanding the procedures involved in leaving and re-entering the U.S. can help you anticipate or avoid possible difficulties or delays. In this workshop, we'll discuss documents needed for travel and re-entry, applying for a new visa, and reasons for visa delays and denials, including security clearance requirements. You'll also learn more about U.S. port of entry procedures, including what to expect if you have an expired travel signature and what happens in “secondary inspection”; and about procedures to follow if you plan to travel outside the United States during OPT (Optional Practical Training). There will be time after the workshop presentation for you to ask any additional questions you may have.
Be advised that the workshop presentation will not be provided at the workshop. So please remember to print and bring it with you to the workshop so you can follow the presentation. If you have questions about the handout, please save your questions for the workshop.
