summary of housing
Summaryof housing

  • 建議多一點人一起住同一棟宿舍或附近,以免孤單並保障深夜歸宿的安全。
  • 互相分享各間宿舍的活動資訊。
  • 雖然宿舍很舒服,但請不要出國了還都宅在宿舍!
slide17
美簽
  • 重要網站:

美國在台協會─非移民簽證服務

http://www.ait.org.tw/zh/nonimmigrant-visas.html

  • 辦簽證步驟:

參照網頁左邊”如何申請非移民簽證”

裡面的步驟一至七

  • 原則上填DS160,選J-1類簽證,用DS-2019表格

(依UIUC的入學通知書上面的為準)

slide18
美簽注意事項

1. 注意網站中的說明

2. 去到AIT,東西一定要帶齊!

3.打發等待時間用的東西請帶非電子儀器

4. 記得面談要先預約

5. 提早辦美簽

6. 簽證費用(要用信用卡)

7. 請參考PTT的VISA板

slide19
台灣、美國來回機票
  • 去、回程的地點、時間:

-地點:從那裡飛回台灣?三段票 or 四段票?

-時間:

去程- 注意UIUC宿舍開放時間和orientation

回程- 注意畢典時間和盤纏

  • 價格:

- 大家分工詢問多家旅行社進行比價

- 網路上有很多資訊可以搜尋

slide20
美國國內機票
  • 盡早規畫好行程,才能等待便宜的機票
  • 注意機票內容是否包含托運行李
  • 出發前可到航空公司官網線上check-in
  • 多多利用price line等網站
slide22
費用
  • 學費: ~$8,700(未到美國前繳)
  • 住宿費: (到美國開學後繳)

- 大學部宿舍:~$4800

(含一週12餐 + 25credits,再加上雜費)

    • 研究所宿舍:~$2700(含雜費但不含餐費)
  • 伙食費:恩…要有心理準備。
  • 雜支:生活日用品、旅費……

注意台幣兌換美金匯率!

slide23
Cash
  • 主要用來支付小額或臨時開銷
    • 如:投幣機、小費、中國餐廳
  • 大部分的錢應存在銀行,平時用Debit卡消費
  • 建議攜帶500~1000美元現金,以20美元或100美元為單位攜帶(依照需求斟酌),其他則使用旅遊支票
    • 現金遺失尋回機率低,而旅支則需要本人簽名才可使用,遺失也可詢求補發,故較為保險
  • 注意入境可攜帶總金額:不超過10000美元

(含旅支)

slide24
旅遊支票 (旅支)(1/2)
  • 可到銀行購買
  • 美國大部份的餐廳、飯店、商店都可使用旅行支票
  • 可以直接存進美國銀行的戶頭,視同存入現金,不會加收手續費
    • 但純粹拿旅支換現金會收手續費
    • (建議在超商或超市買東西時把旅支找開)
slide25
旅遊支票 (旅支) (2/2)
  • 一定要立刻在Signature of holder

(持票人)欄位先簽名,以免遺失時被冒用

  • 先將全部的票號抄起來,以免真的遺失
  • 使用時,當著商家的面在Countersign here in the presence of person cashing欄位簽名,有時商家會要求看護照
  • 隨身攜帶發行旅支公司的電話,萬一掉了要立即掛失
