Travel Reminders: If you plan to travel outside the U.S. during the Spring Break, please check your travel documents: valid passport, valid F or J visa, and signed I-20 or DS-2019 for you and your dependents. You need a current travel signature on page 3 of your I-20 (received within the last 12 months). Also, we recommend that you carry an unofficial transcript or copy of your current course schedule as proof that you are currently enrolled and maintaining status. If you believe you do not have proper travel documents, email email@example.com or call 561-297-3049 .
I-94 Automation Procedure: Paper I-94 cards are no longer issued at airports upon arrival in the U.S. Your arrival/departure records are now electronically maintained. Upon returning from an international trip, go to www.cbp.gov/I94 to print a copy of your I-94 record. If you are unable to locate your I-94 on the electronic I-94 website, and you have taken the steps to eliminate possible errors, you will need to contact your nearest Customs and Border Protection Deferred Inspection Site and the CBP Officer will be able to assist you. We recommend that you visit the Deferred Inspections office in West Palm Beach.
Address Updates: Please check your MyFAU screen and update the SEVIS local and SEVIS foreign addresses if necessary. Also, fill out the Change of Address Form and submit to ISSS in person or via email firstname.lastname@example.org . You must update your address within 10 days from the date you move.
