Division of International Services (DIS) Staff

DIS provides immigration-related services to the NIH Intramural research community as well as the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). DIS has three teams: two teams that primarily focus on case processing, and a Customer Service team that handles general inquires and our office communications, including our website and newsletters.

If you have a question related to an open case at DIS and are already in contact with an Immigration Specialist (IS), you can contact that IS directly. Otherwise, you can contact DIS by email at DIS@mail.nih.gov or by phone at 301-496-6166.
