Site Visits

US Citizenship and Immigration Services occasionally sends site inspectors to UT to meet with departments and individuals in H-1B status. The intent of the site visit is to confirm that the H-1B employee is employed in the position and location that was specified in the H-1B petition. These site visits are often random and unannounced, and may occur prior to or after approval of a given petition. The inspector will likely ask for information about the person’s employment, including an overview of duties as well as proof of employment (often in the form of pay stubs or W-2 forms).

If you have any questions about a USCIS site visit, please contact Elizabeth Smith at ewasham@utk.edu or 865-974-3177.
