Visa Checklist for Visiting and Exchange Students
Note: By now you should have received a student visa document (form DS-2019) processed by the College, which is an essential document for your visa application process.
- Apply for a student visa (J-1 student) at the U.S. consulate in your country of citizenship or country of legal residence and receive a valid U.S. student visa stamp on your passport.
- After you receive a U.S. student visa stamp on your passport, please make sure you pack all important travel documents and supporting documents in your hand luggage/personal carry-on:
- Valid passport with a student visa stamp and visa document (form DS-2019)
- All other documents mentioned on the letter included with your visa document mailing—it is best to bring all documents you prepared for the visa interview with you.
