Travel Advisement for Undocumented Students

NYU's Office of Global Services advises that undocumented students do not travel outside of the U.S. due to potential challenges facing reentry — even those currently covered by DACA.

Please note that as of September 5, 2017, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is no longer accepting applications for Advance Parole, nor is it processing applications that have already been received.

If you have decided to travel despite our advice to not do so, and already have  Advance Parole from USCIS, below are several tips that may help prepare you for the process of going abroad.
