Immigration Response Team

Share Your Experiences

The Immigration Response Team created the following forms so that we can track the experiences of the UMN community. We use this information to identify trends. These forms are voluntary, and you can choose whether to submit your name and contact information.

“Extreme Vetting” for U.S. Visas

Embassies and consulates can now request much more information from visa applicants. We are interested in learning how this might affect all UMN campuses. If you are willing to share, use this form to report your visa application experience.

Tracking Experiences with Customs and Border Protection

Immigrants, international students and scholars, and U.S. citizens can share their experience with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) when entering the United States. Experiences with Customs and Border Protection is a voluntary form to help us understand how students and staff might be affected by CBP inspections, including searches of mobile devices.
