Default J1 visa India, SON

Hi there,

This is with regard to acquiring J1 visa in India.

Does anyone here know where exactly to get the Statement of Need from?
I found the required form on the Ministry of Health website but don't know how it is done.
Can it be done at the civil court or does it have to be done through mail or directly from Ministry of Health?

I am clueless.

Also, does anyone know if the J2 for spouse can be processed simultaneously or has to be done after my J1 is approved?

I will really appreciate any inputs.

Thanks.

Now I know that I have to download the form and send it by mail to Ministry of Health on their address in Delhi.

However, can anyone please tell me if it can be done without a DS2019? My program says that they will start processing DS2019 only after I give them SON but the ministry list DS2019 as a requirement.

Anyone else who has dealt with it, can you please help me out?

Thanks.

My program too has asked for statement of need. But Ministry of health also needs visa documents. Its like chicken or eggs. Can someone please provide the details?

Also do we need to visit ministry in person? or can we just send the documents via post? How much time does it take typically?

Default SON

Join hands for challenging this requirement of paperwork to issue statement of need in Indian court system, it is unethical/non judicial and discriminatory.

email me and we will fight in coming academic year (after we get our SON)
Thank you
