The Q-1 nonimmigrant visa is designed for foreign nationals who are coming to the U.S. to participate in an international cultural exchange program. Under the Q-1 visa, the foreign national can engage in practical training and employment which is related to sharing the history, culture and traditions of their home country.
The program employer must designate a management-level employee to administer the program and act as a liaison to USCIS.
The employer must be engaged in the active conduct of business in the U.S., and must agree to pay the foreign national the same wage as similarly employed U.S. workers and that the employer has the ability to pay the wage.
Also, applicants who have previously been granted Q-1 status must remain outside the U.S. for one year before again being granted Q-1 status.
The Q-1 program designation is approved either for the length of the program or 15 months, whichever is shorter. The person is also given 30 days after the expiration of the visa in which to make travel plans for their departure from the U.S.
