Can I visit my home country and then re enter the US? 4 Answers as of August 22, 2011
I am in US on J-1 visa but my US visa has expired. I do have a DS-2019 valid until July 2013. Is there any way I can visit my home country for a month and then reenter US. Re applying for US visa in my home country would take 3-4 months and I cannot stay that long. Please help.

If you J visa has expired, you are not in legal status. You may not return on DS-2019 alone, you will need a new visa.

The answer to your question depends upon the specific information in your DS-2019 and non-immigrant visa. These documents may indicate that you can use them for multiple entries.
