Immigration

The University of Utah is comprised of a highly diverse community of people, including physicians, professors, scientists, and scholars from all over the world. The attorneys and staff in the immigration practice area facilitate obtaining work authorization for foreign national employees, such as H-1B, O-1, and TN visas. We advise the University of Utah's International Student & Scholar Services, the Graduate Medical Education office, and individual departments on a variety of general and complex immigration matters. Some of the specific immigration services provided by the Office of General Counsel relate to:

  • Recruitment and retention
  • Employment eligibility and verification
  • Immigration petitions for University-sponsored visas and green cards
  • Foreign national physician issues, including foreign medical graduate training, J-1 waivers, and alternative Utah state medical licensure standards
  • Federal regulatory compliance
  • Immigration-related legislation at the state and federal levels
  • Immigration-related export control issues
