Below are the steps involved in the J-1 Visa application process.  Once all required documents have been submitted to Intrax, the DS-2019 form or Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-1) Status will be issued and shipped directly to your client within two weeks.  

A validation Skype call and a phone call will be conducted with your client and the host company supervisor respectively.  Full payment and a site visit to the U.S. host company (if required) must also be completed before the DS-2019 form is issued. 

In order to ensure sufficient time for both Intrax and embassy or consulate processing, your client's J-1 Program start date should be no earlier than one month from the document submission date.

Our team will continuously monitor and keep you apprised of the application status throughout the entire process.
