Because the United States is such a large country, the port of entry may vary. The port of entry is where you enter the US for the first time from a foreign country. This is the airport where you will meet with US Customs Officials and have your passport stamped. An official will staple the departure portion of the Form I-94 to your passport and stamp your I-20.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT REMOVE THE I-94 FOR ANY REASON AND MAKE SURE THAT THE OFFICIAL STAMPS YOUR I-20 or DS2019.
