Before you leave the United States, you must do the following:
If you know or realize that your visa has expired or will expire on the date you plan to re-enter, you will need to renew your visa, and you must make an appointment on a Wednesday only to see the ISS Specialist. You must bring the following documents for your renewal of your student visa.
Note: If you are a J-visa student and your DS-2019 was issued by another entity such as the Institute of International Education (IIE), you must contact the responsible Officer whose information appears on your DS-2019 document to get a new one.
An important note to F-1 students who have applied for OPT and who wish to travel:
If you have applied for Optional Practical Training (OPT) and have not yet received the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) card from USCIS, you should be aware that leaving the U.S. before your OPT application has been processed by the USCIS may be considered by the USCIS to be abandonment of your application. Also, if you try to re-enter the U.S. and do not have your I-20 signed for travel within the last six months or do not have your EAD card to show as proof that authorization has been granted, you may be denied entry into the U.S. You may wish to speak with the International Student Advisor before proceeding with any travel plans.
