Travel Signature Day for International Students


Posted on Thursday, Mar 12, 2015

International Student Services has scheduled travel signature day sessions for students who will be traveling this semester and during the summer break.  The sessions will be held at International Student Services.  Students who are planning to travel outside of the U.S., and who currently have an I-20 or DS-2019 re-entry signature endorsement expiring within the next 3 months or less, must have their documents signed before their travel begins.  Appointments for the March 16th session are currently available. The appointments for future Travel Signature dates will be posted as they become available.

During the travel signature sessions, international students who have signed up will be able to have their travel signature processed. Only students who have signed up in advance will be able to use this service (to control crowding and allow for smooth processing of the maximum number of individuals). To register for any of the Travel Signature Days, visit the Event Registration System website at https://ers.tamu.edu and login with your net ID and password. You will be able to view all available ISS travel signature days and times through this site. When you register for a day and time, an email confirmation will be sent to your tamu.edu email. You can also view your registrations in the ‘My Registrations’ tab.
