International Student and Scholar Travel Information
Travel In the United States
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has the authority to set up checkpoints at airports, bus and train stations and detain individuals within 100 miles of a United States border or seacoast. International students traveling in the United States without proper travel documents have been fined and detained by CBP agents. Remember that many large cities including New York, Washington DC, and Richmond fall within CBP's jurisdiction. To avoid any problems with CBP, it is recommended that you bring your original I-20 or DS-2019, your passport, and visa with you when you travel outside of Farmville.
