The Office of International Students and Scholars provides immigration advising and support services to help international students enroll and succeed at Lehigh University.

Travel Advisory

OISS advises that continuing international students, faculty and staff undertake non-essential international travel with caution in light of the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on visa processing at U.S. Embassies and consulates overseas. If your visa has expired and you travel overseas, your risk of not being able to return is high due to U.S. consulate closures and the backlog of visa applications, especially in certain locations.  Please visit our COVID-19 Travel Updates and FAQs page for more details, and contact OISS via e-mail if you would like assistance in assessing the risks related to internatioanl travel.

Please be aware of the COVID-19 related travel restrictions and protocols established by the CDC as well as Lehigh's COVID-19 policy. It is recommended that you review the guidance prior to arranging travel to Lehigh.
