  • 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

    Yes, you can. Make sure you have all docs required for this visa.
    Since you are married, you will be asked about your spouse which you can explain. It's not going to affect your application. Many people want to immigrate on their own merits and that's ok.
