J-1: TravelIn order to travel outside of the U.S. you need to carry following documents:
- DS-2019 Form (signed by RO/ARO)
- Passport (valid at least 6 months into the future)
- J-1 Visa (visa in most cases should not be expired)
- I-94 Card
Obtaining a Travel Signature
It is essential that you obtain a travel signature on your DS-2019 form from the RO or ARO before attempting to travel outside the US! You may drop off your DS-2019 at the Registrar's Office front desk and the Registrar (RO) will sign the document for travel within a week.
Canadian students do not require a visa to enter the U.S. However, they are still considered international students and must have a valid DS-2019 when re-entering the US. Canadian students must make sure to receive an I-94 card at the U.S. port-of entry marked “J-1”.
Dependents or Visiting Relatives
A DS-2019 may be issued for your legal spouse or minor children to apply for a J-2 visa to travel to the United States. You must first provide financial documentation that shows their full support during their stay.
If a J-1 student will be away from NNU for more than 30 days it is advised that any J-2 family members depart with the J-1 student.
