Official visit requests

MIT welcomes official delegations and professional international visitors, whose visits are managed through the office of the Senior Director for Institute Events and Protocol and in consultation with the Director of International Affairs. (For campus tours and admissions, please see the visitor information pages.)

Connections may be made through embassies, US Department of State International Visitor Leadership Programs, direct contact, and MIT referrals. To expedite the process, we ask that you complete the official visit request form at least two weeks prior to your visit. You may email specific questions to

Please note that there are certain periods during the year when the availability of MIT’s faculty and staff members is limited due to the academic schedule. For this reason, it is highly unlikely that we will be able to accommodate professional group visits on legal US and Massachusetts holidays and from mid-May to the end of August or during the last few weeks of December.

Thank you - we look forward to welcoming your group to MIT.
