To enter the United States as a J-1 scholar under CWU’s sponsorship, you must have a valid J-1 visa stamp in your passport endorsed with CWU’s name or J-1 program number. If you have an unexpired visa stamp with another J-1 sponsor named on it, please check with the United States Embassy for advice on the need to change sponsors.
To apply for a J-1 visa, take your DS-2019 form, passport, and the DS-2019 forms and passports of your dependents if they will be accompanying you to the United States Consulate of Embassy. The visa officer may ask you to document funding that does not come directly from CWU (with such documents as a letter of award or support, a back statement, proof of income, etc.). Your dependents will need J-2 visas and you should be prepared to show proof of marriage to you spouse and parenthood of each child. Each dependent will have his or her own DS-2019 that is signed by the J-1 scholar. Dependents do not sign these forms. Any child who is 21 years of age or older cannot enter the United States on a J-2 visa. Children who are U.S. citizens should not enter the U.S. on J-2 visas; they should use their U.S. passports.
