Effective immediately, the Visiting Researcher/Scholar program has been suspended for incoming visitors. In consultation with Immigration Services, we estimate the earliest start date for incoming VRS to be on or after July 1, 2020, depending on the developing Covid-19 situation and global travel restrictions. Updates will be issued from Immigration Services when sponsorship under this program is again active. Incoming visitors with a previously approved start date before July 1 should contact email@example.com to establish a new start date, and also contact Immigration Services regarding the cancellation and or deferral of their visa sponsorship.
If a Faculty Sponsor has an existing VRS and wishes to extend the date of the visit past the original visit end date, please send a request for UGAID extension with explanation/justification and updated end date to firstname.lastname@example.org, and contact Immigration Services at email@example.com with questions about visas or other immigration concerns.
