Planning Your Travel

Students issued a Form I-20 and using the F visa to enter the United States need to pay close attention to their planned dates of arrival. Non-immigrant students are allowed to enter the United States up to 30 days prior to the start date of their class. If you don’t know this date, look on your I-20. The third section on page 1 is titled, “Program of Study.” In this box, you will see “Earliest Admission Date.” This date is the earliest date you can arrive in the US. Do not book travel prior to this date. You may have to return back to your home country or pay extra expenses for a vacation you didn’t expect.
