J-1 Travel and Re-entry

While you are in J-1 status, you are permitted to leave the U.S. and re-enter in J-1 status provided you present the required documentation. If you intend to re-enter the U.S. and continue your full-time course of study, you must always be admitted to the U.S. in J-1 status. This section provides detailed information on the requirements for traveling outside the United States and re-entering in J-1 status. Please note that if you are sponsored by a program other than UNK you should discuss your status and any travel requirements with your program sponsor.
