Services for International Employees & Scholars

Travel Signature

Travel Outside the United States

Prior to traveling outside the United States, it is the scholar’s responsibility to obtain a travel validation signature for re-entry into the United States.  To obtain a travel signature contact an advisor in International Programs and bring your DS-2019.

Travel Inside the United States

If you will go on vacation to other areas of the United States, you may freely do so.  You do not need to gain permission from International Programs.  Please talk with your KU faculty advisor about when you plan to go on vacation.  Remember when traveling, you should always take your documents.
