Hello!  This website contains information and links  relevant to visiting J-1 scholars.  Most of the content here is drawn from the website of the UC Davis Department

of Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS).  This website is not officially affiliated with any UC Davis website. There is much more information to be found on the official SISS website, so click here to visit that site.  (You will find information on scholar programs, other types of visas, etc.) Also see the US State Department website on J-1 visas by clicking here.

Some of the items in the main menu bar will have sub-items which will appear in a drop-down list when you hover your mouse over the main menu item.  If any questions come up while reading the material on this site, check the “FAQ” section to see if your question appears there.  Also, to translate the website into another language, for example Chinese, click on the icon at the right-hand side of the menu bar and click on the language you want.

If you have any questions, suggestions for the website, or just want to get in touch with me, don’t hesitate to email me (Lee Meddin) at–I hope this website helps you plan your trip here  and gives you useful information.  I look forward to meeting you!
