OK, I understand now. Kindly remember to rate my customer service before leaving the site today. Like you, I want credit for the effort and positive customer service I put into doing my job. And you are the only person who can assure that I get credit for that. Thank you!
What you need to do is get in touch with a Department of State Designated Sponsor, which will issue a DS-2019 for J-1 internship programs.
Here you can find a list of such sponsors, provided by the Department of State: http://j1visa.state.gov/participants/how-to-apply/sponsor-search/?program=Intern
Each program sponsor has its own costs/fees and timing for issuance of the DS-2019. So you will need to contact them directly to determine those elements.
I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to talk on the phone for a fee, I can send you an offer for that.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service
with a positive rating
so I get credit for doing my job. This is very important. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can keep asking questions even after you have given a rating.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service
. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
Negative ratings are reserved for Professionals who are rude or unprofessional. Giving me a negative rating does not help you get a different answer or outcome. So do not give a negative rating if you need more help, or if I misunderstood your question. Instead click REPLY so I can continue to assist you
is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
