DS-2019 Form Information and Instructions
The DS-2019 form is your Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-1) Status as a visiting faculty member (professors, research scholars and trainees) at Central Washington University (CWU). The following information explains the procedures for obtaining an initial J-1 visa and maintaining your status in the USA.
VALIDITY OF DS-2019
The DS-2019 form allows you and any dependents only 30 days from the start date given in item #3 of the DS-2019 to arrive in the US and report directly to the Office of International Studies and Programs at Central Washington University. If you cannot arrive and report to our office, please let us know immediately so that we can issue a new form for you. The Student Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) computer system will consider you as a “no show” if you arrive late or do not report to your office in time.
