I am currently in US as an Intern (J1 visa) in private country club. My J1 visa are going to expire really soon (02/19/2013) and I would like to know if I have some chance to get H3 training visa. I was planning to apply for H1B visa, but I heard that is really difficult for small company. I got offer from another private country club, but I need to find out, if I could apply for these H3 training visa, even that I have internship in similar field. I would like to know whats my chance to get these kind of visa (I would like to get more experience, because my Internship wasn't sufficient :( Please advice.
This will be difficult to obtain as the J-1 you just had was likely also a training program. You will need to show training received was not sufficient and training necessary for futre plans back in your home country, country club has a regular training program and not one being set up just so they can employ you.
We can evaluate for you if you wish to set up a consultation.
