International Visitors Policy

To ensure that we have a complete and up-to-date record of international visitors, the Office of International Programs must be notified of all such visitors. International visitors are defined as an individual who is not a US citizen or permanent resident, who is not an LSU employee or student, and who will be on campus longer than 28 days. 

The unit head (or designee) of the host unit shall notify the Office of International Programs via web form (below) of any such visits no later than one week prior to the beginning of the visit. This notification should include the visitor’s name, nationality, purpose of the visit, LSU host name and email address, expected dates of arrival and departure, and where they will be hosted on campus (e.g., office number).
