As the office designated to handle visa issues for Brandeis University, the ISSO works with department representatives to prepare employment-based visa petitions. The department is our primary point of contact, and is responsible for facilitating the application process with the prospective employee. The prospective employee will be asked to complete the scholar application form to provide the documents we need. While the prospective employee is considered as the application, Brandeis University serves as the petitioner so that we can sponsor a prospective employee for an H-1B visa.
