I am currently in US on my J1 visa. I am participating in cultural exchange program called Work&Travel. I will try to explain my situation.
- on my visa it is stamped that I don't have a 2 year home residency requirement
- I came here in early July
- my visa expires on October 1st
- after October 1st I have 30 days of grace period during which I can stay in the USA
So it is classic Work&Travel visa which is approved for thousands of foreign students. My question is what can I do so I could stay here legally after my J1 visa expires? I found a couple of similar questions but answers are pretty old. Thank you in advance.
There are many different types of temporary visa categories. See which ones you may qualify for.
