All visas fall within two broad categories: non-immigrant and immigrant. Non-immigrant visas are given to individuals who intend to reside temporarily in the United States. The position they fill may be permanent, but they must be in it temporarily. The vast majority of UCONN’s international faculty and staff are here in some non-immigrant category.
