ISS invites all to follow our international journey through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. If you would like us to post something, feel free to let us know!
As an international student on an F1 or J1 visa, it’s very important throughout your stay in the United States to protect your status by complying with the terms of your F1 or J-1 visa. Also known as “maintaining good status”, this is the #1 priority of ISS also.
Failure to do so can make you “unlawfully present in the U.S.”, which would have a negative impact on any future plans you may have in the U.S. In certain cases, violation of visa status can lead to deportation, and you could be barred from re-entering the U.S. for up to 10 years.
Your Student Exchange and Visitor Information System (SEVIS) record holds all data related to your immigration status in the U.S. Therefore, your SEVIS record should be updated to match changes in real life at all times.
