Welcome to NIH! For the next few days you will be working closely with DPSAC and the NIH
Division of International Services (DIS) to satisfy all of the federal requirements for working with the U.S. Government before you can start your new position or be given access to NIH facilities and information systems.
If you are a non-immigrant foreign national (non-U.S. citizen), DPSAC recommends that you visit the
DIS website to get an understanding of legal status/work authorization requirements that will be needed prior to visiting DPSAC.
Prior to DPSAC processing, all non-U.S. citizens (with the exception of U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents) must have their employment eligibility and legal status validated by DIS. Additionally, foreign nationals must obtain a valid U.S. Social Security Number prior to being initiated into any DPSAC process. When registering and sponsoring Foreign Nationals in NED, AOs should request proof of citizenship to avoid errors in the citizenship/LPR registration fields in NED.

Foreign nationals must bring two forms of valid U.S. Government issued identification, one of which contains a photo, to their Enrollment appointment. Please see the list of
