J-1 Check-In Instructions
J-1 Scholars and Student Interns must check in with Belinda Pauley upon their arrival to Virginia Tech. Scholars and student interns can see Ms. Pauley without an appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-11:30AM. Remember, you can only check-in after you arrive in the U.S. Please bring your DS-2019 form, passport and I-94 record to check in. The same documents will be needed if any J-2 dependents arrived with you. You may download and print your I-94 record from this website: https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home
During check-in, you will be asked for your physical address where you will be living during your J-1 program and information regarding health and accident insurance that meets the J visa requirements.
