How far in advance (before the start date) can I apply for a US J1/J2 visa?

Can I apply for a US J1/J2 around 6 months ahead of the start date?

  • I thought there was some rule about 120 days, but I haven't found a reliable source. Ask the consulate, maybe? – krubo Aug 28 '18 at 15:01

You can apply as soon as you have the required paperwork from your sponsor.
