The former J-1 visa holders are eligible to apply for O-1 visa, however, they cannot change their status directly from a J-1 visa to an O-1 visa. Once the O-1 visa petition is approved, the J-1 visa holder is to leave the U.S. and apply for an O1 visa stamp at the U.S. Embassy in their country in order to re-enter the United States on an O-1 visa status.
