Visa Questionnaire

The visa questionnaire found below collects information on visa-related issues from the scientific community. The data collected through the questionnaire will be used to track trends and report urgent visa cases to the U.S. Department of State.

You are eligible to complete this questionnaire if:

  • You are a student, scholar, or professional in the sciences.
    AND
  • You have applied for a non-B1 visa to come to the United States for science-related activities and your application has been undergoing administrative processing for 60 days or longer. OR You have applied for a B1 visa to come to the United States for science-related activities and your application is pending 14 days prior to the U.S. event’s start date.

Please note that individuals who have applied for dependent visas (such as F2 and J2) should not complete this questionnaire.

No personal information submitted through this questionnaire, including your email address or the name, will be used for non-visa related purposes. Your email address is required so that we can follow-up with you regarding your case.

Please submit only one survey per applicant. If you have any changes or updates to report about the applicant's visa, please email us at: visas@nas.edu
