  • Applying for J visa while married to American

    I have been married to an American for over 2 years now, but decided not to pursue the green card through her. I finished my master's and worked under my OPT while on the F visa. Since my current employer can not renew my OPT, they offered me to switch to the J visa.
    I would like to know if there is a change that the consulate might reject my J visa application, since I am married to an American.

    Thank you

    When applying for a j visa one of the conditions is that you are planning to stay here temporarily, so since you’re married to a US citizen it may conflict that because it looks like you’re planning to stay permanently. It would be easier to apply for GC
