Why get an J-1 visa

The J-1 Visa classification, through the Exchange Visitors Program, is authorized for those who intend to participate in an approved program for the purpose of teaching, instructing or lecturing; studying; observing; conducting research; consulting; demonstrating special skills; receiving training; or attending graduate medical education or training. A J-1 Visa lawyer can assist you in the application process. This nonimmigrant visa is widely used by students and professors who are accepted to approved study and work-based visitor programs. To be eligible for the J-1 student visa a substantial portion of your financial support (at least 50% of your total funding) must be from a source other than personal or family funds. This may be scholarship, fellowship or assistantship from an external funding source, your home government, a corporate sponsor, among others. Students with only personal or family funding are not eligible for J-1 status.
