  Hello community!

As the title says, I am IMG on J-1 visa finishing my preliminary year in June, matched to an advanced program that starts on July 2022. Eventually, Iím having a gap year, maybe will spend this time in my home country? idk. The question is:

-Can this year off-residency affect my chances of obtaining visa again to continue my residency in 2022? I had a talk with ECFMG already, technically they said ďwe donít knowĒ, since I must wait until next year for my application to be reviewed and then I will have an answer (I canít wait so long).

-What should I do during this year? Legally, canít obtain a visa for research since I am already on J-1 for physician.

If you know of anybody with this experience, I would like to hear about it!

Much appreciated.
