Description: This webinar will focus on an explanation of the J-1 Visa as well as answering the questions why institutions and organizations offer the J-a1 and why some foreign nationals do not necessarily want this visa. We will review the two year home residence requirement, and the waiver process, as well as looking at the basic requirements of alternatives such as the H-1B, O-1, TN and E-3 Visas.
