Home Licensure Certif. necessary for J1 Visa Application?!

Postby KMH_Heidelberg » Tue Apr 03, 2012 3:06 pm

I was wondering if one needs to already have one's home medical licensure certificate (in Germany: "Approbation") in order to apply for the J1 Visa.

Let's say I match in March and they send me a letter with the actual offer, that I can use to apply for J1. If I only graduate in May and hence won't get my home licensure certificate before then, can I still apply for J1 before that? Otherwise, the timing seems almost impossible to work out considering that programs start 1 July...

Thanks for your help!
