Each year DIS hosts an Immigration Conference to bring together all of the NIH administrative staff involved in the NIH Visiting Program. The goal of the Conference is to equip NIH administrative staff with the skills and knowledge they need to successfully navigate the recruitment and retention of visiting foreign national scientists in the NIH Visiting Program. The Conference sessions include foundational topics like “J-1 and H-1 B Basics”, “Case Preparation for Non-FTE and FTE requests”, and “Badge Clearance for Foreign Nationals” as well as more in-depth topics such as “J-1 to H-1B” and “G-7 Program and Other Advanced J-1 Topics”. There is also plenty of time to ask questions directly to DIS immigration specialists!
This page will be updated with registration information for the 17th annual conference as it becomes available.
