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 avoid any non-essential international travel in light of the ongoing pandemic and related travel restrictions and effects on visa processing at U.S. 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.  Please visit our COVID-19 Travel Updates and FAQs page for more details.

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.
