Leaving the USA
Please contact us by phone or email before you leave the US. This is very important and saves unnecessary confusion and potential problems for you. We need to know the date of your last day of training.
When we know your last day, we will send you a packet with departure information (download). It is very important that you follow these steps, unanounced departure could jeopardize any future travel to (or visa status in) the USA. We will ask you complete a form called Student Final Evaluation of Host and Program - you can also download one, print it, complete and mail to us.
Unfortunately, you can not simply ask the post office to forward your incoming mail to your home country. You have to make sure your host has your current home mailing address - politely ask him to forward your mail. The host should also remember to send you your form W-2 in January the following year as required by law. You will need the W2 form (Wage and Tax Statement) to complete your taxes.
