J-1 Exchange Visitor

In This Section

The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program fosters global understanding through educational and cultural exchanges.  All exchange visitors are expected to return to their home country upon completion of their program in order to share their exchange experiences.  J-1 exchange visitors are funded by a non-personal source (e.g. home government).
