Inviting Foreign Academics

Memorial University welcomes academics from around the world. Foreign Nationals who visit the university are required to obtain the necessary immigration documents to enter Canada, remain in Canada and visit the university. The nature of the visit, activities to be performed and duration of visit are all factors that determine the appropriate invitation letter issued by the university and the paperwork that will be required by Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to issue the appropriate immigration documentation.

Please contact the Office of Faculty Relations for assistance and information on immigration requirements for foreign visiting academics.
