Sponsoring Employees for Permanent Residency

Georgetown University sponsors certain faculty members, researchers and staff for Permanent Residency. The supervisor and the international employee should make an appointment with Sandra Layton in OGS to discuss the options and application procedures prior to completing any forms.  

Tenure-track or tenured faculty should be in touch with OGS during their first semester to initiate the green card process.  Teaching faculty have a deadline of 18 months from the date of their offer to be sponsored for Permanent Residency under a Special Handling Labor Certification.
