Departments are required to process all foreign nationals coming to or extending their time at the Medical School through the online immigration intake form, including but not limited to visiting scholars, employees, observers, research fellows, volunteers, and faculty.

Once ICU validates the visa type, the MS-ICU works with the International Center to apply for the visa. It is recommended that the visa process take place concurrently with the appointment process.

The Immigration Intake website gives department representatives a way to initiate the process by entering information for ICU, in consultation with the International Center, to recommend a correct visa type and assist in visa processing.
