Hi I am asking this for my husband "to be"....I'm us citizen and don't have to deal with such things!!! My husband will be joining residency shortly and he got those few questions on J1: 1)when do you renew your visas ahead of time ????????suppose next year this time your visa about to expire and we got the contract for the next year......how much ahead of time will be the renewal or when should it be done ahead of time ??? 2)can it be renewed in the USA ? 3)if you returned back home during your vacation in the internship year and at that time there will be "less than a month from the expiry of your multiple entry J1 visa " ....can you return back to USA without renewing it since it is still valid for 25 days and multiple entry.....?
