CBP No Longer Stamping I-20 Forms at Border

August 17th, 2012 by Brian D. Zuccaro

USCBP has informed NASFA that it will no longer stamp F-1 visa holders’ I-20 forms when F-1 students enter the U.S. This change may result in some F-1 visa students having difficulty in establishing their F-1 visa status in order to receive certain benefits from state agencies. Students experiencing these types of problems should contact USCIS, which will then contact the state agency to clarify the matter. Additional information is available at NAFSA’s website.
