Visiting the Division of International Services

The Division of International Services (DIS) is located in Building 31, Room B2B07 on the main NIH campus. Office hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. We are closed on Federal Holidays.

All visitors to NIH are screened in accordance with NIH established security practices. Current NIH Visitor Program Participants must show their NIH ID to enter the campus. If you do not have a current NIH ID you must enter the NIH as a Visitor. NIH Visitor Information

It is highly recommended that you do not bring any major baggage (such as luggage) to the NIH. If you do, be prepared to have it inspected by the NIH guard. This will delay your visit.
