J Visas Elevating Immigration Solutions with Experience, Diversity, and Cutting-Edge Technology

J Visas for Exchange Visitors

Experienced J Visa Attorneys Based in Dallas, TX

The J visa allows foreign nationals to travel to the United States under numerous exchange programs recognized by the USCIS.

Individuals ranging from students to researchers and specialists can:

  • Pursue their studies
  • Receive training
  • Or share their knowledge under this visa program

This visa also allows the visa holder to pursue other extracurricular activities outside of their cultural exchange as well.

The visa holder can bring their spouse and certain dependents to accompany them during their stay with the J-2 visa. The J-2 visa is a non-immigrant visa that is granted by the consular official at a U.S. embassy.

Who Is Eligible for a J-1 Visa?

J-1 visas are available for:

Research Scholars or Professors

With the J visa, scholars are free to conduct research, teach, lecture, or participate in scholarly activities that promote exchange for an accredited post-secondary institution, library, museum, or similar institution.

College and University Students

Foreign students can apply for a J-1 visa if they intend to study at a U.S. post-secondary accredited college or university full-time.

Government Visitors

Prominent international visitors can enter the U.S. and participate in activities that promote and strengthen relationships with U.S. government agencies. These influential individuals are typically selected by a U.S. government agency.

Foreign Teachers

Qualifying foreign teachers can teach at an accredited U.S. primary or secondary school.

Physicians

Visitors can apply to work, research, or conduct training.

The J-1 visa requires that all visa holders return to their county after the exchange program has ended. Extensions are available through your program sponsor, who must file an application for the extension.

A Reputation of Excellence Our Success

    "...Highly recommended and great law firm."
    I just want to take a moment and personally thanks Kavitha & Akula Law Firm for helping me out and getting through my complicated I140 case. It was a impossible case which Kavitha made it possible. As usual Kavitha's expertise has been phenomenal. I am very grateful to her. Because of her experience and professionalism in filing the I-485 it didn't even trigger an RFE or an interview request, it was a direct approval. And having Ambreen and other expert counsel members are really great to work with. They are prompt and very helpful. Ambreen, is so wonderful and have dealt so patiently and promptly with me during my I485 and the efforts she have put towards my application was at par. I was fortunate to work with Ambreen during this filing period. Highly recommended and great law firm.
