Obtaining J-1 Exchange Visitor Status for Foreign Nationals Already in the US
Foreign Nationals in the US have two options if they wish to obtain J-1 Exchange Visitor status: one is to travel outside the US and reenter in J-1 status after obtaining a J-1 visa stamp from a US Embassy and then other is to apply for a Change of Status in the US with USCIS.
Please read over the information below before deciding on which option you prefer. After you have read over the information below, you can contact ISSS to set up an appointment with Sharon Loughran by calling 215-204-7708. Please be sure to bring your passport and your I-94 card to the appointment.
