Foreign National Payments
Centralized Processing Regardless of the classification of payment, all payments, both wages and non-employee compensation, to Foreign Nationals (all Non-US citizens) are processed through the Payroll Office to ensure proper and special reporting and possible tax withholding.
Start the process as early as possible, contact the Office of International Programs (OIP) regarding your Visiting individual. In some cases, Foreign National Consultants & Independent Contractors are not allowed to receive payment based on their entry Visa.
Purchase Order Restriction Foreign Nationals to receive non-employee compensation are not to be paid via Purchase Order or Non-Purchase Order Voucher. A Service Agreement or specialized agreement must be submitted with the corresponding payment voucher.
