After receipt of your visa, the second step on your journey is to make your
arrangements to travel to a U.S. port of entry. At that time, you will undergo
U.S. immigration and customs inspection. Please refer to our "Before Arrival"
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for information on entering the U.S.
After your arrival, you must report to the DIS no later than your
first day of work in the laboratory/branch. You can, however,
check-in with us before your first day. Failure to check-in can result in
cancellation of your program at the NIH! Click here to continue on your
journey and learn how to check-in with the DIS.
