Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS)

Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS)
SEVIS compliance implements section 641 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) of 1996. This act required the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), now the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to collect current information on an ongoing basis from schools and exchange programs relating to non-immigrant foreign students and exchange visitors during their course of stay in the United States.
