Office of International Services (OIS)

Overview

Welcome to Einstein's Office of International Services (OIS). The OIS serves as a resource regarding immigration matters for the Einstein community. We are here to provide guidance to our international students, scholars, faculty, staff and their families on matters relating to their studies and employment. This office is the college liaison with the Department of State and the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS).

The OIS is located on the Jack & Pearl Resnick Campus, 1300 Morris Park Avenue, Belfer Building, Room 1201, Bronx, NY, 10461. The office hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. It is recommended that an appointment be scheduled to discuss any concerns or questions.

Immigration Announcements

The United States Citizenship & Immigration Services requires that all nonimmigrant’s report a change of address to the Service within ten days of moving. There is no fee for the processing of the form and the procedure is very simple. The USCIS form AR-11 allows you to change your address online.

Once you complete the AR-11, make a copy for yourself and one for the OIS. Send the copy to the OIS, Belfer Building Room 1201 so we may update your record in SEVIS.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have begun implementation of the automated version of Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record, at air and sea ports of entry.

Upon inspection at the point of entry, CBP will give foreign travelers a tear sheet with instructions on how to look up their electronic Form I-94 on CBP’s website. From this website, you can print out your Form I-94 in paper format. Foreign travelers may need their Form I-94 when requesting certain USCIS benefits, or when applying for public benefits from other government agencies.

For more information regarding CBP’s I-94 automation or to access your electronic Form I-94, please see CBP’s News Release or visit their CBP's website.
