Document Pickup

Scientists who need to pick up documents from DIS may book an appointment. You will receive an email confirmation from once DIS accepts your appointment.

Note: These appointments are strictly for document pickup. If you would like to discuss an immigration-related issue with a specialist, please use our Advising Services.

If you are a scientist located at a remote NIH site (Baltimore, North Carolina, Montana), refer to the guidance for your worksite below.

Main Bethesda campus

You must schedule an appointment via the DIS Calendar between the hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Refer to this map of the DIS office location on the NIH Bethesda campus.

Remote NIH sites

A bi-weekly or weekly mailing will be sent to DIS Key Contacts at remote NIH sites. Please allow at least two weeks of processing time from when you receive your eNOA from DIS to coordinate document pickup with the individual associated with your worksite below.

  • NIA (Baltimore) - Contact your Administrative Officer (AO)
