Arriving in the US

Before you leave for the United States, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the different kinds of documents you might need. It is always a good idea to carry your original documents at all times. Do not put them in your checked baggage.

It is also a good idea to make at least two sets of copies of these documents: one copy to leave with your family or friends before you depart and one copy to give to your school officials. Here is a list of the important immigration documents:

  • Passports
  • Visas
  • Form I-20 / Form DS-2019

As you are entering the United States, you will provide your Passport and Visa in order to get:

  • Form I-94

NEVER throw any of these documents away. It is important for you to always keep the original copy.
