Export Control, Hiring and Visas

UB's export control office reminds you to consider compliance costs and be sensitive to potential public policy ramifications when considering the hiring of foreign nationals. 

In 2011, the Department of Homeland Security's U.S Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) changed the visa application as regards controlled research, equipment and access to controlled information. Those changes don't prevent the hiring of non-U.S. personnel unless someone is on a government restricted list.

Hiring and when to contact UB's export controls office

Contact us if you answer yes to either question.

1. Is the candidate from an embargoed country?

2. Is the candidate going to be working with restricted materials or items that may have a military/defense application?
