  "Important Note on Eligibility and Basic Requirements of the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program:

All initial applicants for ECFMG J-1 sponsorship are advised that sponsorship eligibility should not be presumed and cannot be determined until a complete review of an individualís U.S. visa history has been conducted. The U.S. Department of State has expressed concern about individuals with a history of ďtransiting non-immigrant visa typesĒ and has advised ECFMG against sponsoring individuals who previously held J status and switched to an alternate visa classification or J category before applying to ECFMG. Therefore, any history of multiple successive changes in visa classification and/or movement between multiple J categories impacts eligibility for J-1 sponsorship."

This information is on the first page of residency token purchase. Does it mean that I will have trouble changing from J1 research scholar VISA to J1 residency training VISA?
