The NYU Office of Global Services normal business hours are Monday - Friday from 9am to 5pm. If you have an immigration concern during our closed hours, you can find here information that will give you the most direct path to help.
We've compiled here a list of the most common concerns we see when our office is closed.
Please review how to get a travel signature. If you intend to return to the US during our office closure or less than one week after the OGS reopens in January, pay close attention to the information on “returning within one week” under the guidance on getting a travel signature from “outside New York City or the US.”
It’s possible for you to get a travel signature from outside of US. Please review how to get a travel signature. If you intend to return to the US during our office closure or less than one week after the OGS reopens in January, pay close attention to the information on “returning within one week” under the guidance on getting a travel signature from “outside New York City or the US”
Please review the information on our executive order page for the latest update on how your travels may be affected and what resources exist for you.
If you are a citizen of one of the countries that has at any point been included in the travel ban executive orders, we recommend you to provide your information to both us and the NYU Immigrant Defense Initiative by filling out this international travel form if you decide to travel internationally for any reason.
Contact your school and/or department to inform them of your situation and find out what the latest possible date is that you can return to begin the spring semester. Please note, the earliest the OGS can contact the US Department of State on your behalf is 60 days from the date of your interview.
You should contact the consulate that cancelled your appointment to ask when the next available appointment is. After taking the next available appointment, you should continually monitor the consulate’s website for new earlier appointments. We are unable to secure a new appointment for you and have no authority to influence the processing times or policies of consulates.
Please refer back to the emails you have received from the OGS. These emails include a link to our comprehensive visa instructions which will give you an idea of where you are in the process. There is also helpful information on our Visas for NYU Study Abroad pages.
Please refer to the visa instructions the OGS emailed to you. Also refer to GlobalChek Plus which is available on the bottom left side of the page after you log into NYU Home.
Please refer to the sample application where available. A link to the sample application can be found in the visa instructions that we emailed to you and for Spring 2018 Study Away students on our important forms page.
If a true emergency has developed and you need your passport for international travel, you should contact the consulate where you submitted your application. In some cases, withdrawing your passport may mean you have withdrawn your entire visa application. You may need to start the visa process over again from the beginning. The consulate will be able to inform you about any impact withdrawing your passport would have.
