Document Collection and Travel Signatures

F-1 AND J-1 STUDENTS

F-1 students may request a travel signature or I-20 reprint by submitting the “Travel Signature/I-20 Reprint Form” in iHopkins under the F-1 Student Services section. 

J-1 students may request travel signature or DS-2019 reprint by submitting the "Travel Signature/DS-2019 Reprint Form" in iHopkins under the J-1 Student Services section.

Please plan ahead and allow up to 10 business days for issuing your I-20/DS-2019. You will have the following options for receiving your I-20/DS-2019:

  1. U.S. Postal Service (U.S. addresses only)
     
  2. eShip Global
     
  3. Electronic I-20 [F-1 Students ONLY]. During the COVID-19 emergency, SEVP is allowing schools to issue the I-20 electronically. If you choose this option, you will receive a digitally signed Form I-20 that contains a digitally reproduced copy of a physical signature. We will send it to you by secure email to the email address we have on file. To open the email and retrieve your I-20 from a non-JHU email address, you will be prompted to set up an account with Cisco Registered Envelope Service (CRES). Instructions for creating an account can be found here.

SEVP has coordinated with both the Department of State and U.S. Customs and Border Protection regarding their policy to allow electronic I-20 issuance for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency. You may want to consider printing the announcement and carrying it with you when you apply for a visa or enter the U.S. to help avoid confusion.
