Your first step will be to request the initial immigration paper work. This will consist of 2 steps:
- Request UGAID (81X number) for the Student Intern. Please follow this process:
- Complete J-1 Student Intern Sponsorship form in iStart. You will find step-by-step instructions here:
iSTART Departmental Guide
After you submit the form, the student intern will be emailed a similar form automatically. Once both forms have been submitted, the following documents will be created by our office (Immigration Services):
- DS-7002: Internship Plan. You will be sent a .pdf copy to print, sign and return to our office.
- DS-2019- Immigration document for visa appointment.
The student-intern will be able to apply for the J-1 visa at this point. Detailed instructions will be sent to the individual regarding visas, travelling, Athens, and other items to know before arriving.
