International Visitors

Export can take the form of oral, written, electronic, or visual disclosure, shipment, transfer, or transmission. The term “export” can mean not only technology leaving the shores of the United States (including transfer to a U.S. citizen abroad) but also transmitting the technology to an individual other than a U.S. citizen or permanent resident within the United States. U.S. Government regulations govern what scientific instruments, technologies, software and materials can be accessed by foreign nationals studying, visiting, or working in the U.S.
