International Visitor Review and Invitation Letter Process

International Visitor Flow Chart

As a reminder, this process is required for all foreign national visitors to VT whose visa is not directly sponsored by Virginia Tech.  This does not apply to U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. (i.e. green card holders). Collaborative research generally cannot be performed by international visitors. Please see the International Visitor Guidelines for appropriate visa status for various activities at Virginia Tech including research engagements or contact International Support Services for visa recommendations and processes.
