Click here for our recently updated FAQ Regarding Immigration Status and Services at UGA

Please note: In order to best serve our students and scholars during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Immigration Services will continue to mail documents through fall semester to reduce in-person office visits. See here for more information.

Immigration Services will assist international employees with visa sponsorship necessary for the type of activity performed at University of Georgia (UGA). Visa sponsorship means that UGA has agreed to assist the scholar or employee with the process of obtaining a visa in order to come to the U.S., or with the process of transferring or changing an existing legal status for employment at UGA.
