47 ABC – While millions of Americans woke up to extra money in their bank accounts on Tuesday, questions still loom about who exactly is eligible for a stimulus check.

One group of people that is eligible is J-1 visa holders.

A representative from Congressman Andy Harris’s office confirmed on Tuesday that the visa holders are eligible if they have a social security number, are not claimed as a dependent by someone else, and meet the income threshold.

J-1 visas are non-immigrant visas that are often issued to professors, researchers, and students.

For those still looking for their stimulus checks, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) launched an online portal on Tuesday to help you track your payment.
