I have been accepted for an unpaid internship in the U.S. The internship will run approximately four months. I graduated four years ago with a Bsc. degree. I would like to know what type of visa I would need to come to the United States for this opportunity. I have held a B2 visa in the past which expired last year.
Will you receive any compensation? Rent? Meals?
Perhaps a J-1 visa would be applicable.

A B-2 visa does not appear to be appropriate in this circumstance. Even though you are not being compensated, you are still working as defined by applicable regulations. A J-1 visa may be appropriate, but more facts are necessary to determine your eligibility. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the facts of your case and advise you how best to proceed.
