What is DS 2019?

DS 2019 form-provided by the program sponsor.
After accepting the program and confirming the accommodation, the sponsoring agency from the USA provides you with the DS 2019 form. DS 2019 is a “Certificate of student exchange at J-1 status” accepted by the United States. The form indicates your program sponsor, the goal of the program and contains the exact dates within which you are allowed to work, the details of the employer, as well as the start and end dates. Any deviation from these dates may result in program interruption and denial of the DS 2019 form.
