At Old Dominion University, we are very proud of our community with professors, researchers, and other professionals joining us from every corner of the world. Visa & Immigration Service Advising (VISA) is here to serve your needs by providing guidance via immigration regulation advising and assistance via software we purchase that aids in the completion of annual income tax paperwork. In addition, we are here to assist in getting you connected with resources you may need that are not related to your academics or employment. We hope you will discover that ODU is an outstanding place to work. In general, international employees come on either a J-1 Scholar visa or an H-1B visa; students who work for the university will usually have an F-1 visa or a J-1 Student visa. Clicking on these links can give you more information about the applicaton process for these statuses.

Should you have any questions about J-1s, H-1Bs or any other visa statuses, please feel free to contact VISA at 757.683.4756 or by e-mail.
