Prospective Foreign National Employees

Congratulations on your appointment! We look forward to your arrival at The Wistar Institute. Preparing to work or train abroad is a challenging adventure and it can be overwhelming at times. That is why we have prepared the following information for you. We have tried to include information we think will be helpful to all international exchange visitors (J-1) and temporary professionals (H-1B1) prior to arrival.

In addition to the information provided here, the Immigration Representative will be happy to answer questions about traveling, housing, health insurance, banking, climate and living in Philadelphia. We are here to help make the transition to life in the U.S. easier so that you can have a successful experience at The Wistar Institute.

We look forward to getting to know you!
