NOTE: If you do not get your I-20 signed, you might not be able to enter the country. If you do not give the CISP enough time to process your Travel Signature request, your I-20 will be mailed to you at your own expense. Please keep in mind that you cannot be out of country longer than 5 months as your I-20 will expire and you will need to request a new I-20.
