If you need to travel outside of the United States for an emergency while you are studying at VIU, you will need to obtain permission from the ISS office BEFORE you travel. To gain permission to travel, you must submit the following to the ISS office:
- Travel Authorization form
- Copy of your plane ticket
- Your most recent I-20
Once your travel is approved the International Student Advisor will sign your I-20 and you will be free to travel for a limited time.
Please note: Without this travel signature you will experience a delay in being readmitted into the U.S. and there is a chance that your admission could be delayed.
