The Immigration Services office can assist UGA Colleges and Departments with permanent residency (aka: "green card") applications for permanently hired staff, researchers and faculty.
Any request for permanent residency is based on a permanent, full time employment commitment by the university, and will require assistance by departmental staff and the expenditure of funds to pay required Immigration Services and government filing fees, and possibly advertisement and recruitment costs, depending on the category of sponsorship.
