Request Visa Documents for H-1B Employee or J-1 Exchange Visitor

The Office of International Programs is transitioning to a new immigration software (e-OIP) that will help to streamline visa processing requests for both faculty and incoming scholars.  To request visa processing for a new or continuing H1b or J-1 scholar please follow the directions below.  Please note that you will need a copy of the scholar’s passport and CV to complete this process.  

If you have any questions about this process, please do not hesitate to contact umaineimmigration@maine.edu or call 581-2905.  As we are in the initial roll-out stage of this system, please share feedback on any issues you may encounter.
