All F and J Visa holders are required to receive a travel authorization from their international programs advisor prior to any international departure. If you do not receive this on your I-20 or DS-2019 then you will be blocked from re-entry into the United States upon your return. Travel authorizations last for one calendar year once added to an I-20 or DS-2019.
In order to request a travel authorization, please email InternationalPrograms@nwacc.edu and schedule an appointment at least 14 days prior to travel.
During the appointment, please bring the following:
- Current I-20
NOTE: Any request less than 14 days from travel may not be fulfilled in adequate time and could cause travel problems. NWACC can mail you a corrected I-20 or DS-2019, however, this will have a financial cost.
