J-1 Visa: Internships & Training

How a New York Visa Lawyer Will Help

If you are unfamiliar with immigration law, arguably the most complex area of the law, you may be wondering what a J-1 exchange visitor visa is and who can apply for one. A J-1 visa, often referred to as an exchange visitor visa, is one that allows a person to enter into the United States and participate in some form of an approved exchange program. Often, students, trainees, short term scholars, foreign medical graduates, and camp counselors or au pairs are eligible to apply for this type of visa.

A J-1 visa, often used for short-term internships and training, has many advantages, including the following:

  • Short processing time of less than 30 days;
  • Duration of the visa can range from six months to seven years; and
  • Additional permissions to work in U.S. outside of their program in some cases.

If you are considering applying for a J-1 visa, you need the help of a highly qualified and skilled New York immigration lawyer. Without an immigration attorney, it is more likely for a person's application or appeal to get denied than approved. When the odds are not in your favor, you want to team up with the right attorney.
