Got any helpful hints regarding visas and obtaining a Social Security number? Lots of helpful employee and benefit information can be found on the Human Resources page of this Carnegie Institution for Science link. For visa information, visit Travel.State.Gov, which is a service of the Bureau of Consular Affairs at the U.S. Department of State. Banking at Suntrust, 5000 Connecticut Avenue, is convenient and provides certain benefits for Carnegie employees.
Reminder from the Fiscal Office: J visas holders be aware that when planning on leaving the U.S. on business or vacation that your DS-2019 needs to have the Travel Validation section current by having Carnegie’s responsible official’s signature in place before departing. Otherwise, there may be problems when attempting to re-enter the U.S.
