Find out what you need to do to maintain your J-1 Student status and how to obtain J-1 Student benefits.
If you apply for a waiver of the Two-Year Home Country Physical Presence Requirement (INA 212e), and your waiver is recommended in writing by the U.S. Department of State (“No Objection Statement”) or you receive Form I-612 from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, you are no longer eligible for any J-1 benefits (DS-2019 Extension, Academic Training, SEVIS Transfer, etc.). Therefore, please consult with ISS before applying for the waiver.
Have a quick question? ISS offers virtual drop-in advising Monday, Tuesday & Thursday afternoons from 1:30-3:30 p.m. & Friday mornings 9:00-11:00 a.m.
