How to apply for a J-1 visa for exchange visitors

The J-1 visa offers cultural and educational exchange opportunities in the U.S. through a variety of programs overseen by the U.S. State Department.  The J-1 exchange visitor program is most appropriate for young leaders eager to hone their skills, strengthen their English language abilities, connect with Americans, share their culture, and get training that will help them in future careers.  Exchange visitors under J-1 visas are expected to return to their home country upon completion of their program in order to share their experiences.  For some J-1 visas, you are required to reside in your home country for at least two (2) years after completing your J-1 program before you can apply for a work visa or permanent residency.
