BIO Express Travel Signature Day

Miscellaneous | May 9 | 10 a.m.-3 p.m. | International House, Great Hall

 Berkeley International Office(BIO))

Berkeley International Office has set aside this special day for "express" travel signatures just for you! Stop by any time during the hours below to get your documents signed on-the-spot (please read below *Do You Really Need a Travel Signature?).

Come to the I-House Great Hall for your Express Travel Signature on Wednesday, May 9, from 10am-3pm.

International students and scholars planning to travel abroad need a valid signature (no more than one-year old) from an Advisor in Berkeley International Office on their I-20 or DS-2019 documents. OPT Students' signature is valid 6 months. This signature verifies that you are continuing your program and are eligible to re-enter the U.S.

*Do You Really Need a Travel Signature?
Your documents may already have a valid travel signature. We recommend you get a ""fresh"" signature if your current one is more than 10 months old, just in case. Make sure yours is up-to-date before you leave town. Check your most recently issued document:
- F-1 travel signatures are located at the bottom of page 2 of your most current I-20.
- J-1 travel signatures are found on the front of the DS-2019 in the lower right corner of the document.

Can't Make It to Travel Signature Day?
If you are not able to make it to this Express Travel Signature Day, you can drop off your I-20 or DS-2019 any day during our regular business hours for 3-business day processing.
