    Default Validity of J1 Visa if Leaving Us for 5-6 Months

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

    I'm a visiting researcher in a US public university.
    I have a J1 VISA which will expires at the end of May 2011.
    Now i need to leave the US for a period of 5-6 months for family issues.
    I wanted to know if this will affect my VISa status. In other words, can i come back in May or June without any problem at the airport custom?

    Thank you.

    You should discuss your situation, and your continuation in the program, with your university. Most colleges have an advisor who can help students such as you with their immigration issues.
