Due to heightened security and stricter immigration policies, you might experience longer inspections at the U.S. port of entry. Please have your I-20, Sevis payment receipt and a current bank statement with you, when you are traveling. When booking your flights, please allow for a minimum 3-hour layover time at the airport where you will first land in the U.S. to avoid missing connecting flights and possibly spending the night at the hotel.
Here is the contact information for the university’s Principal Designated School Official (PDSO); please carry it with you when you travel. You might need it if the immigration officer requests it or if you encounter any difficulties during your immigration inspection:
