* J1 visa approval/denials in India
 #840869

  Hi Friends,
I matched into a J1 residency program prematch. I am in the US on H1 in research. I applied for a change of status in February. But the processing times are crazy delayed. As of March 30th applications from last year oct 24th are being processed. There is no way I will get approval in time to start residency. So I am thinking of going to India for a visa interview. I only have heard1 confirmed report that J1 was denied from delhi.

Any info on India j1 visa interviews is appreciated.
Also does anyone know the success rate of J1 expediting process?
Any J1 consultants in India?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

  Hi @indousdoc I'm in a similar situation here in US. My application went in on 3rd April!
Seems unlikely I will make it in time
What did you do?
Can I please get your email?

Many thanks

  stop fear mongering sara, for india the approval rate went higher than the usual, they always had the usual refusal on/off.
an article published in your pakistani journal itself showed that. check the Kemkolian group they shared it.

@integrin, as a pleasant surprise, I received the prematch offer last week which I have accepted! Relief!
Have you received any formal document from them?
Also, do you mind connecting by email? I will also try to connect to my friend that I mentioned above- she did her residency there about 5 years ago but still could be helpful.

All the best"

sorry fbk isnt working for me right now coz my vpn is down but it was from a pakistani newsource that they posted, saying paki applicants had a 40% drop in visa approval for same month vs 2016 while in india it roseby 28% .

I am applying this year but if i were you i wouldnt reply on a simple petition with 500 signatures. Try to contact immigration lawyers or lawyers who specialize in visa who are US based, they would probably advice you best or find loopholes that can help your cause.

Good luck!
