OLAS, the Online Appointment System, allows you to make your own appointment on-line with an advisor in the HIO to discuss immigration issues related to your studies or work at Harvard University. If you have trouble making an appointment on your own, please call the HIO front desk at 617-495-2789 or visit the HIO to schedule an appointment. Please note, many simple questions and processes do not require an appointment. There is an Advisor On-Call (AOC) during regular office hours (9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Tuesday) to handle quick questions and to provide travel signatures.

Appointments regarding permanent residence for faculty and high-level researchers, health insurance information, spouse and family-related questions, and other matters not related to immigration should be made by telephone in order to be scheduled with the appropriate staff member. Please call our receptionist at 617-495-2789 to schedule these appointments.

Once an appointment is made successfully, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. Please be sure to read the e-mail prior to your appointment because it has important information such as what you may need to bring to the appointment.

OLAS Guidelines

  • If you need help scheduling an appointment on-line, please call our office at 617-495-2789.
  • Be sure to click the "Finish" button in the lower right corner in order to finalize your appointment. You should receive a confirmation e-mail.
  • Please bring your confirmation e-mail to your appointment.
  • If you do not receive a confirmation email, this means you did not click on "Finish" and will have to re-enter the system in order to make your appointment.
