 It’s August and we are just a few weeks away from the start of the fall semester. We hope your summer was fun and that you’ve stayed healthy and safe.

Here are a few things to remember as you make your way back to ASU.

Travel letters

If you’re traveling to the U.S., remember to download, print and read each of the following documents. You should bring them in your carry-on luggage along with your admission and/or registration documents.

  • Airport recommendations: Recommendations for travel in the U.S.
    • Follow these instructions when you arrive at your port of entry into the U.S. and enter through U.S. Customs.
  • Letter from ASU: Proof of on-campus, in-person classes.
    • Show this letter to the U.S. Port of Entry officer along with your other travel documents.
  • Letter from ASU: Proof of legal counsel from our partnering immigration attorney.
    • If you encounter any difficulties upon entering the U.S., please show this letter to U.S. Customs. It is a letter confirming that you have legal representation as an international student at ASU by immigration attorneys at Fragomen.
