    Canadians requiring the J1 visa

    Advertisements



    Hi there,

    I'm currently a 3rd year SGU student applying for residency in the US next year and a J1 visa. So the graduation dates for 2011 are April 13th and May 11th for 2012. I heard that it is important to graduate by April 13th to give enough time for applying and processing the J1 visa. However, it's going to be really tight for me to make this graduation date and I am planning on going for the May 11th date instead. For those of you who have gone through the J1 applications, would the May 11th date put me in a severe disadvantage or is it still possible to have everything in on time?

    I have a few friends who had the May date graduation at SGU and no trouble getting the J1 to start residency on time.
    As long as you don't pick the June date you should be fine.
