F-1学生旅行资料

如果你计划在学校放假期间旅行, 在你计划离开前至少一个星期参观DSO.

如果我想离开美国,我需要什么.S. 然后以学生的身份重新入学?

  1. A valid Form I-20 signed for re-entry by a Designated School Official (DSO) within the past year.
    Though the regulations state the I-20 form needs only to be signed each year for valid travel, 我建议所有人在旅行后六个月内签名. 你的I-20必须在你计划旅行的学期内签署. DSO在第三页批准了你的I-20表格. However, I- 20第1页上的任何信息已改变, 你在旅行前需要一条新的I-20公路. 同时,建议携带之前所有的I-20表格旅行,以显示你的旅行历史.
  2. 有效期至少到未来六个月的护照.
    你的护照必须随时有效. If an expiration date is imminent it is important to get your passport renewed immediately.
  3. 有效的F-1签证(加拿大公民除外).
    确保你没有用光你的条目数- 1,2或倍数. 只要签证是F型, and is not expired, 学生不需要再申请新的签证, 如果他/她计划出境再进入美国.S. 用I-20来继续学习. 如果你的签证在美国到期.S.在美国,下次你出国旅行时,你必须获得新的签证才能被重新接纳到美国.S.
  4. 经济支持证明.
    Current financial support documentation (bank statement or financial aid documents) that is no more than six months old. 你将需要这些信息,特别是如果你申请一个新的签证.
  5. 如果你在OPT,有效的EAC(就业授权卡).
    Additionally, 随身携带一封雇主的信,说明你得到了这份工作, 职位描述和雇佣日期, 哪些需要匹配你的EAD. If you are near the end of you OPT, it is not likely that you will be allowed to re-enter the U.S. for this purpose. 请三思旅行!

为什么我需要在I-20表格上签字才能重新入境?

The signature on the Form I-20 verifies that you are a full-time student in valid F-1 non-immigrant status.

我的I-20表格需要多长时间才能签字?

It takes 24 hours. 签署I-20表格包括状态和注册验证. 你应该计划在出国旅行之前提前签署I-20表格.S.

如果我想去加拿大旅行怎么办, Mexico, 或者在邻近岛屿逗留少于30天,我的F-1签证过期了?

检查您的国家/护照国家和旅行地点的所有签证要求. 你需要满足他们的签证要求, 也可以让你的美国签证保持畅通,以便再次入境. 如果你有有效护照, a current F-1 visa, 表格I-20,并附有最新的重新入境签名, and a Form I-94 indicating you have been admitted for Duration of Status (D/S) you can re-enter the U.S. 只要你的旅行少于30天,你的F-1状态有效. You must retain your Form I-94 and tell the border official that you are taking advantage of "automatic visa revalidation." Currently, 这项福利不适用于古巴公民, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. In addition, 如果你决定在加拿大更新你的签证, Mexico, 或者相邻的岛屿,你的签证会被拒签, 你不能再进入美国.S. 自动签证重新验证.

建议在旅行期间提供其他文件

  1. Official transcripts from Coe or other schools if you are a transfer student to show your full-time status.
  2. A letter verifying your attendance at Coe: A letter will be written for you verifying your full-time status at the college in case you are asked to provide verification of enrollment status. 请在旅行前至少10天向DSO提出申请.
  3. Proof of course registration for the upcoming semester (shows the purpose of your return to the U.S.). You can print out your registration from the web or request an official letter from the Registrar.

在美国旅行.S.

不过国内旅行不需要所有证件, we suggest that you travel with all your documents as you would when traveling internationally. If you have a U.S. driver’s license you can bring that as an ID, but do not count this as your official identification. 你仍然应该带着你的护照和其他法律文件旅行. Also, make sure all travel documents and/or tickets have your name on it as it appears on your passport. If the names are different you will experience problems and may not be able to use your ticket.

Official documents

保管好所有的法律文件是学生的责任. That means you should keep all I-20s and copies of all documents you are issued during your time in the U.S. It is recommended that you make a copy of all your documents before you travel (if you need help, 请联系DSO),并将它们与你在学校的原件分开保管. Although the DSO has these copies, you should store a copy yourself away from the original documents.


Arriving in the U.S. 在机场或入境口岸

When to Arrive

你可以进入美国.S. 初始F-1状态(意味着你是一个新的国际学生, 不是SEVIS转学生),在项目开始日期前30天.

你的I-20表格上应该注明你可以进入美国的最早日期.S.:

虽然你可能知道有学生成功进入美国.S. 提前30天以上,1xbet体育敦促你不要尝试这样做. 美国监察员.S. 入境口岸有权拒绝你入境美国.S., which means you would not be able to leave the airport and would have to return to your home country at your own expense.

在30天宽限期之前进入

如果你觉得有必要去美国.S. 从现在到你最早的F-1进入日期之间, 你可以使用旅游签证或免签证计划, 这取决于你的祖国. 这允许您访问,然后返回家园,并重新进入美国.S. 在适当的时间内保持在F-1状态. 请注意,如果您计划通过免签证计划入境, you will be required to register and obtain travel clearance through the online Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) before boarding a carrier bound for the United States.

为了遵守联邦移民条例, 在你的课程开始之前,你必须处于合法的学习状态.

开始及入职日期

I-20上列出的开始日期是根据你的学术单位的要求. Start dates take into account required orientation and other preparatory programs that all students must attend. 开始日期不能根据个别学生的情况定制.

查找程序开始日期

入境口岸检验

签证相关程序的下一步将是进入美国.S. 其中包括入境口岸的检查.  通常,这是你在美国第一次降落的机场.S., but it could also be a sea port or a land port of entry, depending on your mode of travel.

如果你最初将在美国着陆.S. 然后从那里连接锡达拉皮兹, 你应该在到达和转机之间留出足够的时间, as you have to go through immigration and customs inspection at the first point of entry to the country.

无论你从哪里进入美国.S.在美国的入境口岸准备提供以下文件.S. 海关和边境保护局(CBP)官员. 注意:CBP会在您领取行李前进行检查, 所以你必须随身携带这些文件. 不要把你的旅行证件放在托运行李里.

  • 护照(未来至少六个月有效)
  • 签证章(不适用于加拿大公民)
  • Coe College的SEVIS表格I-20
  • SEVIS fee receipt
  • 金融支持文档

如果你在签证面试时收到一个棕色信封, 它将包含上述几个文件.

二次检查

在检查你的文件, you may be sent to “secondary inspection” which means an additional inspection of your documents is required. Often this is done on a random basis and may have nothing to do with your specific circumstances.

尽管二次检查可能会让人感到恐惧和焦虑, 通常没有什么值得惊慌的.  在中学等待可能需要几个小时, 但几乎每次都能成功被录取.

如果你的文件有问题, inspectors at the port of entry will attempt to contact Coe’s DSO to verify that you should be admitted. 在这个过程中保持冷静是很重要的. Even if there are delays and your patience is tested, it will ease the process to be cooperative.  It will also help to have the DSO’s office telephone number with you (in a place such as your wallet); if you do not have it, 请在出发前询问机场领班.

Admission Stamp & Electronic I-94
