J-1: Research Scholar

International expertise leveraged around the world

Innovate, solve, and gain competitive advantage through the exchange of ideas

Research Scholars are foreign nationals with demonstrated expertise in a given field whose primary purpose in the U.S. is to conduct research, observe, lecture or consult in connection with projects at American research institutions, corporate research facilities, or academic institutions. 

The J-1 Research Scholar visa makes it easy for companies and institutions to source the necessary experts from across the world to accelerate their research and development efforts. U.S.-based companies with a physical U.S. location and the resources to host can bring in subject matter experts from anywhere in the world to participate in the exchange of ideas and improvement of knowledge and skills among foreign and American colleagues. Research Scholars can be based in the U.S. from 3 weeks to 5 years.
