Faculty requesting to host a visiting student or scholar through the department are required to submit a Request for Visitor form. Faculty should refer to the SDS Visitor Policy to determine how early a request should be submitted and administrative policies and procedures relating to SDS visitors.  

The University of Texas at Austin requires the following items be submitted for departmental visitors when initiating a visitor request prior to any business process/appointment;

  • Scanned image of a Government issued ID 
  • Current CV 
  • If applicable: PIF (Payee Information Form -required for reimbursement of any kind)

Please submit the above items at the link below, via a secure download widget, once the visitor request form has been completed. Missing documentation from the list above will result in delays in processing.


Please note: the International Office recommends that the request be initiated at least 3 months prior to appointment/program start date for visting scholars/students requiring a J Visa.
