International students are required to have a travel signature on their I-20 to re-enter the U.S. If you do not have a recent travel signature (within 6 months old) on your current I-20, please fill out the below travel signature request form.
Important Update: The U.S. will require negative virus tests from international passengers arriving by air. Starting January 26th*, all international travelers headed to the United States will first need to show proof of a negative coronavirus test before they can board a flight to the U.S. The test must be within 3 days of your flight, and you will need written documentation of your test results (or proof of having recovered from COVID-19).
*Please note, passengers traveling from the UK to the U.S. already have to show proof of a negative COVID test, as of December 28th.
Due to COVID-19, SEVP has updated their guidance to allow DSOs to electronically send I-20s to student with electronic travel signatures. Therefore, OISS will be emailing you a copy of a new I-20 with a travel signature to your WashU email address. If you have not received your I-20 within 2 weeks of your request, please email your OISS advisor. We recommend you print this I-20 so that you have a hard copy with you when you travel.
