After reviewing the information and FAQs on our website, you can always reach IFSIS staff at and via two drop-in "Office Hours" sessions on Zoom each week.

  • Every Tuesday from 3-5 PM, IFSIS staff are on Zoom to discuss permanent residence sponsorship/administrator questions.
  • Every Friday from 1-3 PM, IFSIS staff are on Zoom to discuss H-1B and other non-permanent residence matters.

Links to both Zoom Office Hours sessions are available in the weekly e-newsletter IFSIS sends to all international employees and administrators every Monday morning. If you do not receive the e-newsletter, please email to be added to the distribution list.

If you need to book an appointment to complete Section 2 of Form I-9 with UAB, please book an appointment with UAB's International Payment Compliance Specialist.
