Going on a trip?

Students should ALWAYS confirm that they have all documentation needed for successful travels both domestically and internationally:

Have you checked current travel requirements for your destination?

While ISSA advises on U.S. immigration for our F and J visa-holding students, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure they have appropriate visas and travel documents to enter other countries.

A few reminders:
  • ISSA can NEVER guarantee that a traveler will be able to return to the United States once they have departed; Any international travel carries some inherent risk and it is up to the officer at the U.S. port of entry to determine your admissibility.
    • Review your rights as a non-citizen at the port of entry¬†here.
  • For students traveling using Global Entry: If you have other valid U.S. visas besides your F/J visas, please ensure that you confirm your intention to enter the U.S. with your F/J visa (you may need to do this manually).
  • Always confirm that your I-94 record was updated correctly upon your arrival in the U.S.
