Whether for the short or long term, working abroad or hosting visitors presents a range of financial, safety, legal, and logistical concerns that must be managed carefully to avoid immigration issues, tax penalties, and other unnecessary costs and complications.

This section provides useful information for MIT faculty and staff who are:

  • Considering hiring someone to work outside the U.S.
  • Planning to work abroad themselves
  • Sending students abroad
  • Hosting international students and scholars

Please contact the ICC early in your planning so that we can support you in managing the details.
