GEO Immigration Services provides timely and reliable U.S. visa and some related employment authorization compliance support and direct services to VCU’s international students, scholars, employees, and visitors and to the VCU leadership, faculty, advisors, and staff who work closely with them.

Contact Us

We welcome your U.S. visa and related employment authorization questions and concerns. For compliance and customer services reasons, we prefer to provide detailed guidance by email first so that we all have a written record of our communication. In-person and Zoom appointments are also available. Please send an email to and an Immigration Advisor will respond to you shortly.

Immigration Advising Hours

Due to the complexity of most immigration needs, the Immigration Services staff is available to meet with you by appointment. We can meet in person or by Zoom. To make an appointment, please email and we will respond to you shortly. On occasion, we may be able to meet with you briefly (five minutes) without an appointment, Monday-Thursday 10 a.m.-3 p.m. only but we cannot provide effective, in-depth support without an appointment.
