Please have the nonimmigrant guest provide you with the appropriate documents and copies. Then please fax them to Barb Seldal in the Controller's Office two weeks in advance of the visit to NIU. Please also schedule an appointment for you and the nonimmigrant speaker or guest to see Ms. Seldal (753-1530 or firstname.lastname@example.org ) during the guest's visit.
Please note that even with these documents completed, in most circumstances the Controller's Office with still withhold 30% from the honorarium for a nonimmigrant, due to federal tax regulations. In preparing for the event, departments may wish to inform the nonimmigrant speaker of this likelihood.
If there are questions, please contact the International Student and Faculty Office at 753-1346 or Ms. Seldal at 753-1530.
