ISSS processes H-1B petitions (and E-3 and O-1 extension petitions) for qualified staff and faculty. We guide departments through the application process and we assemble and submit the H-1B petitions to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services.
The information on these web pages is only a general overview of H-1B employment at UMN. E-3 and O-1 employment information and procedures are almost the same, but be sure to discuss such cases with H-1B staff when initiating a case. The information on these pages is not designed to take the place of direct contact with ISSS. Each employee’s circumstances are unique and any advice or course of action must be tailored to the individual employee’s circumstances and the University department’s needs. Please contact us for information and advice. We look forward to working with you.
