List of things to carry to the USA
I have written this blog to help students prepare or have a check list of things to carry to the USA from India.The List of things to carry to the USA is in the order of importance. Even if you lose your check in baggage the things in your cabin baggage will help you get in. So please follow the list in the exact same order.
Also remember that in case of trouble you have the right to remain silent.
Do not sign anything, such as a voluntary departure or stipulated removal, without talking to a lawyer.
Remember your immigration number and give it to your family. It will help family members locate you.
Give a copy of your immigration documents with someone you trust in the united states.
Inform your International education office in the university your date of arrival and ask for advice if required. Remember their phone number and remember 2 other local phone numbers.
