Before departing to the U.S., please make sure to pack your I-20 form, passport/visa, acceptance letter, and proof of COVID vaccination/testing in your carry-on bag. The I-20 form is an important document. You must travel and present the I-20 form with your passport and visa at the port of entry in the U.S. Do not pack your I-20 form with your baggage that will be checked in at the airport. You will experience delays at the port of entry if you are not able to present your I-20 with your passport and visa.
