Holiday Season is approaching! If you are on a non-immigrant visa and will be traveling during the holiday season, we would like to remind you to email RCUH Human Resources – Immigration ([email protected]) at least two (2) weeks prior to your travel so that we can ensure that you have the proper documentation to travel and to return back into the United States.
Please provide us with the following information:
- Dates of Travel (Departure and Return Dates)
- Who will be traveling with you
- Reason for Travel
RCUH will prepare the proper travel verification of employment prior to your travel and will provide to you as soon as your request has been received.
IMPORTANT REMINDER(S) WHILE TRAVELING OUTSIDE THE U.S.:
- The I-94 admission record. Please go to www.cbp.gov/I94 after your return to check your online admission record then submit a copy of your admission record to the RCUH Human Resources office upon return to the U.S.
- Check the entry stamp to ensure that the period of admission matches the expiration date of the approved visa status. For example, be sure to check the validity dates of your passport before travel. If the passport expires prior to your approved visa status you should renew the passport before you return to the U.S. If you do not renew the passport, upon re-entry to the U.S., the immigration officer will issue an admission record valid only until the passport’s expiration.
- If you are a nonimmigrant employee who has a pending “change of status” petition (i.e., change from F-1 to H-1B, etc.) with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), you must remain in the U.S. until a determination on the petition is rendered. Whenever an individual with a pending “change of status” petition departs the U.S., USCIS will cancel the petition since they consider the beneficiary to have “abandoned” the request.
Please email [email protected] or (808) 956-0871 if you have any questions.
