The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston is authorized by the U.S. Department of State to sponsor certain J-1 visas for international Exchange Visitors. Our Program Number is P-1-05972.

Transferring-In to UTHealth as a J-1 Exchange Visitor

Foreign nationals who are already in the U.S. on a J-1 exchange visitor program must be approved by that J-1 sponsor program to transfer to UTHealth. Current J-1 program sponsor must transfer the visitor's SEVIS electronic record to sponsorship of UTHealth before the Office of International Affairs (OIA) is able to issue continuing Form DS-2019.

Contact us for questions related to sponsorship under the exchange visitor program and issuance of Form DS-2019.

UTHealth administrators and current J-1 Exchange Visitors should see OIA’s intranet website for more information.
