As the office designated to handle visa and immigration matters for The University of Kansas, International Programs (IP) works with KU employing departments to prepare H-1B petitions. Department liaisons should download the required intake forms from our website or contact Senior International Employee & Scholar Advisor Keeli Nelson,firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the H-1B process. The department liaison will need to gather the required documents to submit to IP. IP coordinates all documentation and conducts correspondence with the appropriate government agencies and files all relevant petitions with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If USCIS approves the H-1B employment, USCIS will send the H-1B approval notice (Form I-797) directly to IP. IP will provide Form I-797 and appropriate documents to the department and employee.
