J1 Time Period


Recommended Posts

Hi - I am a J1 research scholar who previously visited the USA from 2006 to 2008. Last year (2019) I came to the US again as a J1 scholar.I'm somewhat concerned about the time frame that allowed me to stay as J1. I heard people can stay for a maximum of 5 years as j1 scholars. If so, does the preceding stay also count? Can anyone please let me know? 

Thank you for the clarification.
