Travel Information

Before Traveling Outside the U.S.

When traveling outside the U.S., please make sure you locate all of your immigration documents prior to your departure and make sure your most recent visa document (I-20, DS-2019, I-797, etc) has a valid travel signature. Be sure to check that your entry visa and passport are still valid as well. If either of these documents have expired, you will need to make plans to have them renewed in advance of your travel. Failure to have all required documents may jeopardize your ability to re-enter the U.S.

Before departing the U.S., read the How to Renew Your U.S. Visa and Required Documents to Re-enter the U.S. webpages.

If you run into any trouble at the U.S. Port of Entry, call the ISSO front desk (781-736-3480) during our office hours or Public Safety (781-736-3333) on holidays, weekends or after business hours.
