The University of Georgia welcomes visiting researchers and scholars (VRS) from all across the world. As the state’s most comprehensive research institution, UGA proudly hosts the opportunity for VRS at all levels in their academic career. Through the UGA VRS registration procedures in the Office of Research, UGA visiting researchers and scholars will be assigned a UGAID and have appropriate “standing” at UGA.
Important: Please note that visa sponsorship through UGA is a separate process through the Office of Global Engagement-Immigration Services. All visa questions should be directed to that office. Units hosting foreign national VRS that will need a visa sponsored through UGA should initiate the visa process through Immigration Services as soon as possible. The visa process can be conducted in tandem with the VRS registration process and the UGAID is not required to start the visa sponsorship procedures.
