B Visa Visitors

Emory University welcomes international scholars for short periods of time to perform various services and activities for the University. Most often, these visitors will come to the U.S. in a visitor status, whether B-1 visitor for business, B-2 visitor for pleasure, WB visa waiver for business, or WT visa waiver for tourism. As a visitor, you may come either to volunteer your services and in particular situations it is appropriate to receive travel reimbursements, honoraria, and other payments. Your inviting department should discuss such anticipated visits with an ISSS scholar advisor prior to your arrival to ensure that any negotiated reimbursements, honorarium or other payments may be honored.
