Information on the Visitor System
Visitors coming to Rice with 1) external funding (no Rice
funding/formerly known as “complimentary”) and 2) access to Rice privileges,
will be processed through the Visitor Portal. Some of these academic visitors may be
international, i.e., not a U.S. Citizen or U.S. Permanent Resident (i.e. “green
card holder”). These nonimmigrant visitors will have a parallel intake
process. Completing the Visitor Portal process, as well as the
steps outlined in Inviting an
International Scholar, must be completed at least 90 days prior to
scholar’s expected date of arrival.
