Dear Sir or Madam,
My girlfriend, she was granted a B2 and J1 exchange student visa.
She is now doing her Clinical Pastoral Education intern which she needs to go further. The J1 covers this intern now.
During the intern is ongoing, she will apply for Clinical Pastoral Education residency to become a chaplain.
This residency will have a typical duration of one year.
My questions now:
1. If my girlfriend would be accepted for a residency, how will be the procedure to extend her J1 or would it be more
easy to apply for a new J1?
2. When we applied for a J1 we got all the SEVIS, DS-160
and DS -2019 documents, and the visa was issued
at the US embassy in Berlin / Germany. During this procedure there was a need of a German home address.
If we would extend the J1 is there a need of a German home address as well ?
3. We had some problems applying for a SSN. My girlfriend went to a SSA in Rock Island, IL (here intern place) and
gave all documents needed. Unfortunately the computer system gave a message, that a document from either
Medical Center (the place where she is doing her intern) or the visa sponsor was missing. Do you have any
idea which document has been missing?kind regards,
