In your excitement, it would be easy to forget some of the essential documents you will need at your point of entry or during your time in school. This travel documents checklist for international students will ensure you have all your academic and required travel documents in one place.
1. Passport : At the top of the list of travel documents for international students is, of course, your passport. Keep your passport near you at all times. You will need it to board your plane and get through customs in any country. Once you have arrived, you will use your passport to prove your age and identity.
