ISO Closed on Friday, November 10, 2023
The ISO, and most MIT offices, will be closed on Friday, November 10 in observance of Veterans’ Day. The ISO will close to walk-ins beginning at 3:00pm on Thursday, November 9, and will re-open for walk-ins on Monday, November 13 at 10:00am.
ISO Staff will continue to monitor the main ISO email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) and will check phone messages to the ISO main phoneline (617-253-3795).
If you have an urgent/emergency situation that cannot wait until the office re-opens on Monday, November 13, you may call the ISO Emergency Phone Number (617-258-5480). The emergency phone line should especially be used if you are experiencing any travel issues at the U.S. ports-of-entry/U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
If you need to request a new Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 with a new travel signature, instructions on how to make the request in iMIT are listed on the ISO Visas and Travel webpage (https://iso.mit.edu/visas-and-travel/). New Forms I-20/DS-2019 generated by the ISO can be emailed to students.
Please be reminded that the ISO has extensive resources online, so we encourage students to review the ISO website (https://iso.mit.edu) for information and guidance, including:
*Visas and Travel resources: https://iso.mit.edu/visas-and-travel/
