Travel Reminder - Do you need a valid travel signature?
Summer 2018
Students traveling outside the US and returning to continue their program of study at MIT must have a valid travel signature on their Form I-20 (F visa holders) or Form DS-2019 (J visa holder) within 12 months of the planned date of return to the US (within 6 months for travel to Canada, Mexico, and many Caribbean Islands).  Also, check that your entry visa in your passport, issued by the US Embassy/Consulate abroad, will be valid for your return or if you will need to apply for a new visa while abroad.  Please consult our "Entering US Borders" webpage for more details.
