Travel within the U.S.

When you travel within the U.S. to any of the 50 states or to the U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands), be prepared to take the following documents with you. 

  • Valid I-20 or DS-2019

  • Valid electronic I-94 printout or I-94 card

  • Valid passport

You may be required to show your immigration documents to an officer of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. There are several checkpoints throughout the U.S.

  • If your visa has expired, don't worry. You do not need a valid visa while travelling in the U.S. 
  • You do not need an updated travel signature if you are not entering the U.S. through a port of entry.
