A J1 Visa is a nonimmigrant type visa that is issued to professors, research scholars, research scholars, and exchange visitors by the US. They all are involved in those programs that foster cultural exchange, especially to receive medical or business training in the United States. All prospective visa holders need to have the required proficiency in the English language and be sponsored by a university, private sector or government program. In 2017, a large number of 343,800 J1 visas were issued.
It may seem easy that you can apply for the J1 and J2 Visas on your own, but it is nothing but a misunderstanding. Many prospective US immigrants like you face rejections due to being over-confident due to completing and presenting their applications improperly and facing the interview with any preparation out of over-confidence. US immigration is not as easy as appears. It’s best to take the guidance of an immigration specialist to do everything systematically. Apart from that, the expert can also help you with increasing your chances of being eligible for the US immigration.
The required eligibility for the J1 Visa is variable as per the program category that a candidate chooses and the organization sponsoring the visa. It’s wise to be in touch with the sponsor without any delay to know about the details related to the specific program. All candidates for the J1 Visa must have proficiency in English and get adequate health insurance. Almost in all cases, the candidate can be required to fix an individual interview with the US Embassy or Consulate in their own country before the granting of a J1 Visa.
When a candidate applies for the J1 Visa in-person at a US Embassy or Consulate in their own county, it may consume from one day (if applied in person) to four or more weeks. The particular US Embassy or Consulate at where a candidate applies also plays a vital role in the processing time.

There are some questions given below that can be asked in the interview. It’s wise to prepare yourself properly with all the documents and answer such questions:
A J2 Visa is a type of nonimmigrant visa. A consular official issues this visa at a US Embassy or Consulate for a spouse and the dependents (unmarried children below 21) of a J1 visa holder who will accompany or join the J1 visa holder later in the US. The best thing about the J2 visa is that its holder can work and study in the country.
The application system is similar to the J1. All family members will get a Form DS-2019 individually (Certificate of Eligibility) that is issued in their names. This form is given to the consular officer at the interview. In case, when the children or spouse apply for the visa with a delay, this form must be received from the sponsor and provided with a copy of the primary candidate’s J1 visa.
The J2 Visa processing time is subject to variation as per the case burden. But, generally, the issuance of this visa takes 30 days from when someone makes an application for this.
