The travel signature is on the second or back page of your I-20/the lower right corner of your DS-2019. The travel signature can be no more than a year old to re-enter the United States, but we recommend that it be no more than six months old.
- To get an updated travel signature, you must be enrolled for the next term and your SEVIS record must be in Active status.
- If you meet these requirements you can bring your I-20 or DS-2019 to the International Center to drop off their form to receive a signature. Students may also request a travel signature via the ISSS Self-Service tool or email an advisor and request a new I-20 or DS-2019 to be sent to them.
- For students unable to come during walk-in hours, you may drop of your documents at any time during business hours. You will receive an email when your document has been signed and is ready for pick up.
- Please ensure you allow one to three business days for processing.
If you forget to have your documents signed before you leave, or if you forget your I-20 in the United States, it is possible to have new documents shipped to you at your expense. You will need to contact an International Student Advisor to request a new I-20 or DS-2019.
