What You NEED Before You Leave for the US - Part 1

Moving to the US is a big deal. This guide lists all the things you need to remember to pack and take care of before you leave for the US. =>This checklist below is a survival guide for before you leave for the US. Go over it, and you’ll be in a good place when you board that flight. ===>(1)The Essential Items: (a) ==> Personal documents: - Birth certificate, driver’s license, insurance policy, university offer letter, academic transcripts, test scores, chest x-ray and immunization certificate, proof of finance, accommodation proof, passport-sized photos. ==>(b): Passport with an F1 visa:. Make sure the passport’s expiry lasts beyond your course duration. ==>(c): I-20: – It will be checked at the port of entry. You will need it when you apply for a Social Security Number and a driving license, too. ==>(d): University address and contact details ==>(e): Electronic devices: – phone, laptop, chargers, Kindle. For laptops, you may have to get one as prescribed by your university. You can sell your own laptop later in that case. ==>(f) Adaptor: – Indian electronics are not compatible with US sockets. Buy an adaptor before you leave. You can also get a compatible power board to charge multiple devices at once. ===>(2) Your Luggage:==> Most airlines will allow you to carry three check-in bags of 23 kgs each. You can also take one piece of hand luggage weighing between 7-10 kgs, along with a laptop bag or a handbag. A useful tip is to put an identifier - like a ribbon, or attach a piece of paper on your luggage with tape - mentioning your name and destination on all your luggage items. Put locks on your suitcases as well. Buy travel insurance as well, to protect against any delays, cancellations or loss of luggage. It is always better to be safe, especially when you are flying to a new, faraway place. ===>(3): Student Accommodation ==>You can choose between on-campus housing or off-campus, where you take an apartment on rent nearby and share it with roommates. Renting with a group of roommates usually works out cheaper than living on campus. The trade-off is that on-campus living allows you to experience the university culture and interact with local students more. If you’re renting, you may want to consider factors such as location, distance from the university, existing utilities, and furnishings, in addition to the rental amount. Try Zillow, Apartment Finder to browse through available apartments, or check out your college FB/WhatsApp groups to team up with other batchmates to find a room.
