    J1 visa application questions for a Canadian IMG

    Advertisements



    Hello. I'm a Canadian IMG (born and raised in ON), and I had a few questions regarding the J1 visa application.

    1) Can I use a prematch US contract to apply for a J1 visa? (as opposed to waiting for the match results)
    2) How long does it take for my Canadian "Statement of need" to be issued?
    3) How long do I need to stay in Canada to get a permanent address? (I moved to the US a year ago)
    4) Can I get a J1 visa for a preliminary position?
    5) After the preliminary year ends, do I need to go back to Canada for 2 years?
    6) After the preliminary year ends, if I get a categorical position, do I need to file a new J1 application?
    7) How easy is it to get a J1 waiver? What does it depend on?

    Thank you very much.

    Hello, I am also a Canadian IMG (born and raised in BC). I have the same questions as you, but I also have one more. Who do we contact in order to get this "Statement of Need". I don't even know who to talk to in order to get it.

    Any info would be fantastic.

    Thanks

    I already got all the answers I need.

    Basically it's all online. Google "statement of need canadian" and go to the first search result which should be "Statements of Need for Postgraduate Medical Training in the United States"
