Hi, I am Dr. Prakash working as Research Associate in NRC. Recently DOS has approved my J1 wavier based on No Objection. However, I am in the first year and my fellowship for three years (2016-2019) and my J1 is end-up in 2018. I would like to continue this fellowship for one more year possibility further extension. Could u please help me after j1 what will my visa status.
Dr. Prakash, Ph.D.
Obtaining a J-1 waiver does not grant you any other form of status. It merely waives the requirement that you return to your home country for two-years following your J-1. You would have to have another basis for your stay in the U.S. in order to stay here after your J-1 stay.
As far as your visa expiring, your actual stay in the U.S. will depend on your I-94 Admission which will list how long you are authorized to stay, which can be beyond your visa expiration date. In terms of other options for stay in the U.S. you should consult with an immigration attorney about your options. Our firm handles scientist, researcher, and physician cases, so please feel free to reach out if you have any specific questions.
