SEVIS stands for Student and Exchange Visitor Information System. It is a government-mandated, internet-based system that provides users with access to information regarding F-1 and J-1 nonimmigrant students, exchange visitors, and their dependents.

SEVIS links educational institutions authorized to admit and enroll international students to U.S. Embassies, Consulates, ports of entry, and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

How Does SEVIS Work?

Finally, when the student completes his or her program of study and any practical training, departure from the U.S. is recorded in SEVIS.
