Information for Non-US Citizens Visiting Researchers

For visa purposes, non-U.S. researchers should provide the following additional information:

  1. Date, city, and country of birth;
  2. Country of legal residence and country of citizenship;
  3. Dates of arrival in and departure from the United States;
  4. Source of funding while in this country;
  5. Names of any family members who will accompany the Researcher as well as their dates of birth, country of birth, legal residence and citizenship.

When all materials from the prospective Visiting Researcher are received, the academic department or program will, in consultation with the Dean, make a decision on acceptance of the applicant. The academic department will designate academic contacts for accepted researchers.

In general, non-U.S. citizens/permanent residents must travel on a J-1 visa (or similar); scholars traveling on a “tourist visa” will not be allowed to begin their visit on the Georgetown campus. For specific information on the process by which to obtain a visa, please refer to the International Student and Scholar Services in the Office of Global Services.
