Department Travel Letters
Some scholars will need letters of confirmation from their supervisors when they travel abroad. These letters may help to mitigate any problems during re-entry into the U.S. to continue their J-1 programs.
J-1 Out of Country Form
For scholars who must travel for a significant period of time outside the U.S. to do research that is connected to their J-1 program at Jefferson, the out-of-country form must be completed and returned to OIA before the J-1 scholar departs the U.S. This will ensure continual participation in the J program and may help mitigate any confusion with immigration upon return to the U.S.
