The J-1 is a non-immigrant visa issued to persons participating in programs that promote cultural exchange, especially programs that help participants obtain medical or business training within the U.S. All applications must be sponsored by a private sector program or a government program.
J-1 visitors may remain in the United States for the duration of their program and for an additional 30 days afterwards.
Individuals interested in pursuing a J-1 visa are encouraged to visit the U.S. Department of State J-1 Visa Website.
