I currently hold a J1 visa as an au pair with the 2 years rule does not apply. I have an employer who would like to hire me to teach in a school and I was wondering if I can just transfer my J1 or what are my options as this new employer would need me asap.
It depends on whether the new employer qualifies under the statute. If you are looking to change status it may be difficult. You should contact an immigration attorney to help you with this case and see whether a change is possible.
