I want to reapply for a J1 visa for my PhD after two rejections with no reason given. I have funding plus a signed bond with home government for five year compulsory service and everything. I want to give it another shot as my classes will begin soon.

Can I apply from another consular station in my country as my current one has a long waiting list for appointments? I read somewhere that one has to apply from the same post or is there any flexibility in that? I could get an early interview date from the other station.

    You should discuss this in depth with your US university. What did they say about it?

    Post a copy of the denial letter (with your personal info redacted) to demonstrate that "no reasons were given." Aug 3 '18 at 2:36
  • Why are you applying for a J1? Normally an F1 would be the appropriate visa.
