The spring semester break is coming up, and if you are planning to travel out of the U.S., we want to provide you with some important travel information.

Travel reminders 

COVID-19 vaccination requirements

Students planning to return to the U.S. must be fully vaccinated in order to enter the U.S. Any ASU student not yet vaccinated can receive vaccines for free on campus at any ASU Health Services location. ASU Health Services has locations on all four campuses, and you can make an appointment through the patient health portal or walk in. 

Review the CDC’s website for a list of acceptable vaccines and other important information, including if you will need to provide a negative COVID-19 test.  

Need a travel signature? 

Please check page two of your I‐20 or page one of your DS‐2019 for a valid travel signature. You can review our website for additional documentation required when re-entering the U.S.

Travel signatures are required to re-enter the U.S. and are valid for one year from the date last signed for current students.

If you are traveling within the U.S., you do not need a travel signature, but you must carry identification documents with you.

How to get a travel signature

If you currently do not have a travel signature or your travel signature is no longer valid, please submit your travel signature request for your I-20 or DS-2019 document using the ISSC self-service portal. Remember that a travel signature is NOT required to depart the U.S. It is only required when re-entering.
