Please familiarize yourself with this material developed by the U.S. Department of State. It will help prepare you for travel to the U.S.
Before you depart, make sure to do these things:
It is very important to bring these items with you on board the airplane (in a carry-on bag). Do not lose them or put them in your checked baggage. Make copies in case the original is lost. You will not be able to board your flight or enter the United States if you do not have them with you.
You should also bring these items on the plane with you:
Try to pack light! You will have access to laundry services while you are in Phoenix. Be mindful of space if you plan to purchase souvenirs while you are in the United States.
For luggage, we recommend:
The weather in Phoenix, Arizona during the program will be warm. You can find out more information about the area on the Arizona Life page. You will also travel to northern Arizona, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington D.C., where the weather is colder.
You will be staying in hotels during the program, which provide towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and a hair dryer. Liquids, aerosols, and gels larger than “travel size” are prohibited in carry-on baggage on U.S. flights.
We don’t recommend packing any liquids in your checked baggage either because they leak and can ruin your clothing. You will be able to purchase personal hygiene items like toothpaste at stores near Arizona State University and your hotel.
