The international faculty and staff unit of International Services (IS) provides centralized Immigration services to LSU departments, international faculty, international staff, and visiting scholars. IS processes non-immigrant visa petitions which the University sponsors (H-1B, TN, E-3, and O-1); US employment-based permanent residence applications (PERM and Outstanding Professor and Researcher applications); and J-1 visa documentation for Exchange Visitors (scholars and interns). IS is committed to facilitating the presence of international employees and visitors at LSU, thus promoting a welcoming, inclusive, and diverse LSU community.
