Port of Entry Stamp


Your port of entry stamp is issued when you enter the United States and is usually placed on the page next to your visa.

You will receive a new stamp each time you re-enter the US.

This stamp contains:
  • Location of entry point
  • Date of entry
  • Class of entry (F-1, J-1)
  • Length of stay (usually "D/S" or Duration of Status, the length of your program)
‚ÄčIf there are errors on your port of entry stamp, let your International Student Advisor know so we can help get them corrected.
