Starting a Request

Timing a work visa request:

FSVS strongly recommends that hiring departments make every effort to submit a request to us a full 6 months prior to the needed start date.  Incorporating enough lead time can prove crucial to minimizing anxious moments for the department, the individual, and their family members.

Initiating a work visa request:

JULY 2017:

FSVS has implemented a new online case system, Tracker 8.  After October 1, 2017, we will no longer accept paper-based requests.

Department Administrators can access Tracker 8 after attending training provided by FSVS.  For information about upcoming training sessions, email us:

Administrators can initiate a new work visa request by filling out and sending a FSVS Service Request to their designated Visa Specialist:
