"J-1 Twelve Month Bar": Anatylok please help!!

Postby ishan_shah » Sat Feb 25, 2012 11:53 am

Hi!!
I have been selected to join as a Research Trainee in Cardiovascular Surgery at Mayo Clinic, Rochester,MN. For this, a J-1 visa will be issued by them. Now, there is something known as "J-1 Twelve Month Bar", according to which if I stay for more than 6 months then I will not be able to re-enter the US atleast for 1 year in the Professor or Research Scholar visa category.
My query is: if I join as a researcher for an year under these terms and then get a residency in the 2013 match, will I have to come back home or will a new visa be issued.

Please help me out.

Your best bet would be to consult an immigration attorney.

You can try contacting Attorney Kidambi at Kidambi & Associates. A friend of mine recommended their office. He answered questions for my friend through their website.
