I have an approved immigrant petition (my sister, a US citizen filed an immigrant petition; my priority date August 5, 2010). Now I am applying through an organization for a J-1 exchange visitor visa as a world language teacher to teach in the US.
My question is:
a) Can/Will I be denied a J-1 visa based on my dual intent (coming/immigrating to the US)? (But I have an immigrant petition that has been approved by the USCIS. But how will a consular officer look at the case? Can he deny the J-1 visa? Under what circumstances can he approve it?) Thanks a lot ;)
