  • Departmental Visa Information Listserv +

    Immigration Services has a UGA listserv specifically for information and updates appropriate to sponsoring international scholars, faculty, or staff for nonimmigrant or immigrant visas. VISAINFO-L is set to send from Immigration Services only important updates to departments; Our immediate goal is to be able to update you in a timely fashion with important information pertaining to international sponsorships, relevant government regulations and Immigration Services processing and requirements. This list is not appropriate for international students and scholars – we have separate lists setup to facilitate information to those populations (H-1B-L for H-1B visa holders; OIESCHOLAR for J-1 scholars; and OIE-IMMIGRATION for international students).

    We strongly urge you, or the appropriate contact in your office, to subscribe to this list.

    1. Search for the list: VISAINFO-L
