During re-entry into the U.S., International students are required to have a travel signature on page 2 of their current I-20 with a date less than 12 months old. Travel Signatures can be used for multiple re-entries into the U.S. within 12 months.
If you are an F-1 student on OPT or STEM OPT, you cannot use this form. You must use the I-20 request form.
F-1 students if you need a new travel signature, please complete the request form below. Once reviewed, your OISS advisor will email an electronic copy of your I-20 to your WashU email. This process can take up to two weeks (10 business days). We recommend you print, sign, and date this I-20 so that you have a hard copy with you when you travel.
J-1 students cannot use the request form below because the U.S. Department of State prohibits AROs from using electronic signatures and emailing DS-2019s. To obtain a travel signature, they must schedule an In-Person Student Advising Appointment with their OISS Advisor and bring their DS-2019 to the office so that it can be signed in person.
International Scholars should contact their International Scholar Advisor for information about travel signatures.
