The J-1 visa requires sponsorship from an organization and is for the purpose of international exchange in the arts, sciences, and education. Workers with a J-1 visa must be engaged in “teaching, instructing or lecturing, studying, observing, conducting research, consulting, demonstrating special skills, receiving training, or receiving graduate medical education or training.”
Many J-1 visitors are required to spend at least 2 years in their home country after the end of the J-1 program before they enter the U.S. again. This 2-year residency requirement may be waived in many situations.
MT Law works with sponsors, companies, and workers to ensure a smooth J-1 visa process for everyone involved. Our attorneys are also experienced with obtaining waivers of the 2-year residency requirement.
