Travel Restrictions and Requirements
For the most part, you can easily travel domestically within the United States, as long as you bring your passport and appropriate documentation. Traveling outside of the United States may carry some restrictions and requires additional documentation and approvals. Rules vary by visa status.
International students in F-1 or J-1 status may travel within the U.S. or abroad during their tenure at Northwestern.
Exchange visitors in F-1 or J-1 status may travel within the U.S. or abroad during their tenure at Northwestern, but must carry specific documents.
Employees may travel within the U.S. or abroad, but they must follow certain restrictions and carry valid identification and travel documents. See restrictions for H1-B visa-holders, E-3 visa-holders, TN visa-holders and employees in the process of becoming Legal Permanent Residents.
Entering and Exiting the U.S.
To request documents for yourself or your dependents, complete a Scholar Document Request form. You can also learn about the electronic I-94; a new one is created each time you enter the U.S., and it should be logged.
