The Department of State (DOS) is seeking an extension of the approval of Form DS-2019, Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (J-1) Status. Public comment on the extension request is due by March 13, 2011. The text of the Federal Register notice contains instructions to members of the public who would like to comment. NAFSA understands from an inquiry to DOS made by The Alliance for International Educational and Cultural Exchange, that DOS is not proposing any changes to the current DS-2019 in this extension request.
