J-1 Visa Waiver Program


The Department of Public Health has proposed amendments to the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies regarding the application submission and review process for applicants for J1 Visa waivers.  Please select this link to view the proposed amendments.  

The proposed regulations are currently in a public comment period in accordance with Section 4-168, Connecticut General Statutes.  The public comment period ends at midnight on October 8, 2018. 

Following the public comment period, the Department will review and respond to commenters and may revise the proposed regulations.  The proposed regulations will then be reviewed by the Office of the Attorney General.  Following that review, the proposed regulations will be forwarded by the Department of Public Health to the Connecticut General Assembly’s Regulations Review Committee for final action.

The Department does not plan begin accepting applications for waiver until the proposed regulations are approved by the Regulations Review Committee.  It is anticipated that this process will be completed by early 2019.
