Immigration advising is available for visa-related support during this time. Immigration Advisors are working as usual but physical access to our offices is restricted due to health and safety concerns.

Immigration Updates

Updates for summer and fall 2021 semesters are in formation. Please check back for the updates.


Contact Us

We welcome your US visa-related questions and concerns. It is almost always easier to answer your initial questions by email than by phone. Please send an email to GEOIS@vcu.edu and an Immigration adviser will respond to you shortly. We check this email regularly during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., and often after hours).

Due to COVID-19, we are working remotely. For everyone's safety, please do not come to GEO in person unless you are invited to do so by a GEO staff member.
