I am an chinese student holding a F-1 visa. I booked a cruise to alaska from seattle. The only stop aboard is in victoria port in Canada. I can stay in ship. But I was told I have to pass the immigration (or custom) when the ship back to seattle. So, Will there be any problems?
I agree with Ms. Vizer. You need to show your documents to an immigration attorney. You will pass through immigration on your return and must have an updated I-20 at that time. You also need to be certain that your stamped F-1 has remaining validity and that you do not need a visa stamping in your passport before taking the cruise.
Please also speak with your International Student Services office to inquire about the update to your I-20 before you depart.
