Global HR is Georgia Tech’s primary resource for matters involving the employment and taxation of foreign nationals on campus as well as providing guidance for the Institute’s employees working outside of the United States.

The USCIS is expanding requirements for some permanent residency applicants. Beginning Oct. 1, two additional applicant categories will be required to meet for an in-person interview. Read about it. 

If you recently applied for a Social Security Number (SSN), you should expect to get your SSN card by mail in mid to late October. When you receive the card, you must visit HR to complete the federal E-Verify requirements and to update your payroll record and GLACIER. If you are a new employee, and have not applied for an SSN, directions are on the OIE website.
