In today's world, more and more people are striving to connect their lives with the United States of America, go there for permanent residence and find a job. In addition, quite a few young people tend to go to study in the United States, because there is a significant number of the most prestigious universities in the world. American immigration law establishes a certain procedure for entry and stay in the country for such applicants. Moreover, this opportunity is open not only for those young people who want to enter an American university, but also for those who are already studying at an American or foreign university. In this case, you can become a student of an American university by exchange. US law establishes a separate category of visas. To do this, potential students need to obtain a J visa or a visa for participants in an exchange program between educational institutions.
In general, US law establishes a significant number of visas and opportunities for obtaining them. For participants in the exchange program between educational institutions and organizations, a category J visa is provided. The main purpose of opening such a visa is to exchange experience, improve qualifications, and organize research. The visa is issued to students of secondary educational institutions, school students, researchers, teachers. It is important to note that this category of visa is also suitable for Work and Travel programs. The J1 visa allows you to stay in the United States for up to 18 months. A student who has received such a visa has the right to an internship and a job. In addition, US law also allows accompanying persons to obtain a visa of this category. To do this, you need to apply for a J2 visa. The J2 visa is established for family members of the J1 visa holder. This visa can be obtained by spouses and children of US students. This method is one of the best ways for students to legally get a job in the US. For foreign citizens, it is possible to obtain all types of J visas.
