  • Can j1 holder stay with no payroll

    All,
    We are trying to move to different university and J1 transfer is completed but the payroll is not started yet as still they are waiting for background check process to complete. My question is now is that legally allowed?
    I know in H1B visa, no payroll for a day means out of status. So wondering if J1 is different in this case? I would appreciate your inputs if anyone aware of this.

    It is possible to maintain J1 visa status using personal funds (https://www.immi-usa.com/j1-visa/j1-visa-extension/). Universities, international offices, have specific requirements and you need to find out what the minimum personal fund requirement is and how to demonstrate the availability of funds.
