To apply for a visa, J-1 scholars will first need to obtain a DS-2019 from ASU. Consult with your department for more information on this process. Please check with the U.S. Consulate near you for the most up-to-date application procedures and requirements.
You do not need to apply for a visa if you:
Are a national of Canada or Bermuda. You are exempt from the requirement of obtaining a visa in your passport but you do need a DS-2019. You also have to pay the SEVIS I-901 fee.
Already have an unexpired J-1 entry visa in the same classification that was issued when you were at another school. You may use your unexpired visa to enter the U.S. with a DS-2019 from ASU.
