J1 visa app from third country

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

I am a by born citizen of Bangladesh, currently working as a postdoctoral Researcher at a university in Canada (after completing my Master and PhD here from Canada). Recently, I accepted a post-doctoral research position at a renowned university in USA, and they are processing my J1 sponsorship request. I'm wondering if I would be able to apply for my J1 visa from Canada (as a third country, status: non-immigrant, no PR/Canadian Citizen) instead of going back to Bangladesh and applying from there given that the job appointment is from January 1st and it usually takes shorter time if I apply here from Canada. Thank you in advance for your input, appreciate it!
