Office of Global Citizenship
Non-U.S.-citizen faculty and staff should contact the Assistant Counsel for Global Affairs well in advance of travel abroad, to ensure that they have the documentation necessary to enter a third country and reenter the United States, and because departing the country can affect some immigration processes.
Non-citizen travelers should also be aware of possible delays in processing visas abroad and plan travel accordingly.
Documentation Required for Reentering the United States
The documentation required for reentering the United States varies depending on the foreign national’s immigration status. Following is general information about the necessary documentation, but it is not a substitute for contacting the office about your travel plans!
