F-1 Visa Update


Please continue to work with the Office of Global Education in Abu Dhabi on questions regarding your visa application if you are new to NYC this spring.  Students who will need to extend their I-20s will be updated shortly about next steps.


Extend your current I-20
Students who are currently studying in the US and will still study in US for Spring 2017, please make sure you complete your I-20 extension 1 Month prior to your current I-20 expiration. Check your email for the I-20 extension Guide sent by Shanghai Student Mobility. If you have any outbound/inbound visa questions, please email the Shanghai Mobility team at shanghai.student-mobility@nyu.edu.
Complete I-20 Application ASAP
Student who will study abroad in the US for Spring 2017, please make sure you finish the I-20 Form Application Survey here. Please refer to NYU Shanghai Student Mobility portal at here for detailed information on what you should prepare for the I-20 application. PLEASE NOTE: Any delay of your I-20 application submission will affect your visa application and study away plan. If you can’t secure your visa earlier than 7 days before the start of your program, you will forfeit your space at the study away location and will need to reapply for a future term/session.
