PLEASE NOTE: Per immigration regulations, all immigration documents (NYU support letters, visas, residence permits, etc.) will reflect the information indicated in your passport. If you have been admitted to study at an NYU site abroad and are in the process of changing your name, gender, or any biographical information on your passport, we encourage you to complete that process before applying for a visa. If timing will not allow for this, we recommend that you wait to formalize these changes until you have returned from your semester or academic year away. Please contact OGS if you have any questions.
