  1. Hi everyone, I'm currently on a J-1 visa for physician residency and my country was recently added to the travel ban list. My boyfriend is a US citizen. I understand I will have to serve a J-1 visa waiver period vs 2 year home country requirement after completing residency next year. My question is: if my goal long term is to get a green card should I marry my boyfriend sooner or later, would I get a green card any quicker? We've been together for a while already so we know we will eventually get married. Thanks!
  2. Anyone has any ideas on what to do to in this situation? My J1 Waiver Approved August 21 2017... didn't receive any kind of notices because they were being sent to Dominican Republic... on October 4th I managed to update my address (to an US address) and request them to send another approval notice... It is October 18 and still haven't received the letter on the mail.. I need to have this letter by November 15 as I need to bring it to the embassy for my visa interview.. And just so you know my K1 visa was approved October 10th and I received the approval letter October 13.. So I do get mail from USCIS.. just not THIS ONE!!! Could I bring a print screen of the uscis case tracker as proof to the embassy in case I never get the notice? I think that if I request another notice they will tell me to wait 30 days until I can request it and they mail it again..
  3. Hello Everyone, I am currently here at US, Florida for J1 Internship, I have a boyfriend and I really need to stay here thinking about our future. I know that I just need a green card to stay, but we don't want to get married yet. Is there any other way we can do so that I can get to stay here aside from marriage? Thank You
  4. Hello! My fiancé and I have been together for 7 years and I have been going back and forth in the US but now I entered with a j1 visa. He finally proposed and we plan to get married before my contract ends with the help of a lawyer. Can we invite my parents to attend the wedding if my fiancé will write the letter since he's the citizen? What are the chances of them getting approved or denied? Thank you!
  5. Hi everyone, I’m an au pair but I have to quit because of some health issues. A friend of mine told me that there is possibility that I can’t enter the US again on a ESTA for a holiday. It’s kinda freaking me out because I would love to come back as a vacation, and nothing else. Is this true? Or do get troubles when I’m at the airport/border when I want to enter the US in the future? Can some one help me with it because I just can’t find any clear answers about it. Even the agency doesn’t have an answer for me. And did I violate my visa because I’m leaving before the end of my year/J1 visa ends? thank you in advance
