The J-1 visa program was designed by the U.S. Department of State to provide educational and cultural exchange programs, and to promote the sharing of individuals, knowledge and skills in the arts, sciences and education. J-1 visa program participants include students, trainees involved in on-the-job training, teachers engaged in research and teaching, and international exchange visitors interested in traveling, researching, consulting and demonstrating specific knowledge in the U.S.
Spouses and unmarried children under age 21 may accompany or join the J-1 exchange visitor to the U.S. in J-2 dependent status. Spouses and children may attend school but are not authorized to work.
