Visa Assistance Web Mail

This page is for University of Michigan international students, scholars, faculty, staff members or visitors who are experiencing problems obtaining a visa to enter the U.S.

The University of Michigan is committed to assisting our foreign national faculty, students and staff when possible, through this Visa Assist Program.

The information gathered in this form will be sent to a U-M email group. The members of this group will take all possible steps to assist you with U-M related matters such as admission, enrollment, and employment. However, the University's ability to assist with the issuance of a visa stamp is limited.

U.S. visa stamps are issued by the United States Department of State based on your reason for applying to come to the U.S. The U.S. consular official has the discretion to issue you a visa stamp or not.

Please read the information on your Visa Responsibilities.

Please fill in as much information as you are able. The more information you can give us the better we will be able to assist you.
