Departure Grace Period-Office of International Education - Carnegie Mellon University

Departure Grace Period

J visitors (and their dependent family members) have a 30 day "grace-period" after completion or termination of the program in which to complete and take care of personal matters. This may include travel within the United States.

Persons in H-1B status (and their family members) do not have a "grace-period" and are expected to change to another status or exit the United States immediately upon completion or termination of the approved H work. Please make an appointment to meet with an OIE Advisor if you have questions or concerns about immigration or visa matters at the end of your stay.
