Important note for J1 visa holders: Professors and research scholars may participate in occasional lectures and short-term consultations, if authorized to do so by their sponsor. Such lectures and consultations must be incidental to the exchange visitor's primary program activities. If wages or other remuneration are received by the exchange visitor for such activities, the exchange visitor must act as an independent contractor, as defined in 8 CFR 274a.1(j), and the relevant criteria and procedures must be satisfied. For example J-1 scholars coming from Yale to present a lecture at UCSD or attend a conference should receive a letter from Yale's International Center indicating that they are eligible to receive a reimbursement from UCSD. Such a request must be done BEFORE the event.
