Check In

The online J-1 Visa Check-in Application is due within 25 days of your DS-2019 start date and can only be completed after arriving in the U.S. Failure to complete the check-in within the deadline will automatically invalidate your J-1 record in SEVIS which leads to the termination of your J-1 status. If you are unable to enter the U.S. and complete the online J-1 Visa Check-in Application by the deadline, you must contact your department immediately so that they can submit a request to the DGSOM Visa and Licensing to change your DS-2019 start date.
