1. ATTENTION:

All students and scholars in F or J status should be aware that the rule governing Automatic Visa Revalidation has been canceled. In the past F and J visa holders have been allowed to go to Canada, Mexico and islands adjacent to the U.S. with an expired visa and allowed to re-enter the U.S. if their visit was for less than 30 days. This is no longer possible. DO NOT LEAVE THE U.S. WITH AN EXPIRED VISA WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR ADVISOR IN THE OFFICE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION. For questions please contact OIE at visahelp@uga.edu.
