Pitt’s Office of International Services is responsible for processing visa paperwork for Pitt affiliates, and it is important for individual University units to have knowledge of visa types and their use as well. This session explores the various visa sponsorships commonly seen in a university setting. We will look at the type of visa, the restrictions and benefits of each visa, and alternatives to each visa type. This is an important session for anyone who works with international students, researchers, and employees.
