Irish Times: Covid-19 payment to former J1 students may affect ability to return to US

Former J1 students have received emergency Covid-19 payments from the US government which if not rectified could threaten their ability to return to the country, has said.

The situation potentially affects thousands of people who held the popular summer travel visas as well as international students.

The service website said it had become aware of the error from its education and visa partners and warned that those affected must ensure they are tax compliant “if you want to go to the States again”.
