[upbeat music] Student 1: It’s important to plan ahead when you’re
traveling to and from the US as an international student. Student 2: If you’re leaving the US, review your documents at least two weeks before you leave. Student 3: The documents you need for travel are: passport, valid at least six months into the future, your recent I-20 or DS-2019,
including a valid travel signature. Student 1: For students, your
travel signature is valid for one year unless the end date on your I-20 or DS-2019 is sooner. Speaker 3: You will need a copy of the SEVIS fee receipt, an unexpired F-1 or J-1 visa, Speaker 2: [interrupts] That means it’s still
good on the date you’re coming back. enrollment verification or transcripts from the NYU Registrar, proof of financial support that shows you can cover expenses for the year ahead at NYU, and J-1 students should carry
proof of house insurance too. Student 1: Also, these requirements sometimes change. So check out the Office of Global Services’
website at least two weeks before you travel. Student 4: If you will be outside of the US for
a semester or year to research or study abroad, you need to let us know a few things so that we can keep your international student status
active in the US while you are away. Student 3: At the very least, you must: keep a US address in Albert, Student 1: be enrolled full-time, Student 2: and check your NYU email
address for any updates from the OGS. Student 4: And did you know we also
have advisors in our office who specialize in helping students get the right visa for
NYU study or research in other countries? Find out more details on our website. Student 2: Let’s say you finished your
studies at NYU and you’re now working, but you still have your F-1 or J-1 visa⁠— make sure you know all the
documents you need to carry for travel. Student 3: So you will need a valid visa, you will also need proof of your work authorization. Student 1: Okay! That’s the basics
for traveling to and from the US. If you have any questions, we’re happy to help. Thanks for watching. [upbeat music fades]
