Hey everybody !

Well, I have always found great answers and informations on this webiste so I finally add my post as I still have a few questions left without answers ! I am currently on visa J1 (career training)and the 2 year-home requirement doesn't apply. I am interested in starting another internship after this one, with a different company, with a H3 visa and my questions are :

If I do an Adjustment of Status from J1 to H3 while I am here and it is approved, can I travel to my home country or anywhere outside the US after it is approved and the internship has started under visa H-3 ?

Does the H3 visa has more chances to be denied since it would be straight after a J1 visa?

Thank you very much for your help ! :)

You can travel, however....the H3 is NOT for the purposes of extending a soon to expire J1 training period nor is it to be used to duplicate something you already know how to do, and there are a ton of other requirements as well (for example, it is NOT to be a substitute for a work visa, something that it is often tried to be used for....)expect a lot of scrutiny.

Thank you for your answer. Yes, I already know all this, my plan is neither to duplicate what I already know to do nor to extend in some ways my J1 visa since if I wanted I could extend it which is much more simple than the H3 procedure, for which I DO know all the requirements it includes and the scrutiny to expect.
