What is the J-1 visa?

The J-1 Exchange Visitor visa allows foreign students, recent graduates and young professionals to receive practical training in the U.S. in their chosen fields. Participants will obtain their visa in their home country.
Training and Internship Programs are designed to allow foreign professionals and students to come to the United States to participate in the internship and training programs in the US. Thousands of participants take part in this program each year, and have the opportunities to train and intern at some of the finest host employers in the U.S. in order to gain practical experience in their chosen fields.
In order to apply for the J-1 Exchange Visitor visa, participants have to first obtain the Certificate of Eligibility form, called “DS-2019.” It can be issued by the designated J-1 visa sponsor organizations. Each DS-2019 Form is registered through the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) of the U.S. Department of State.
We provide assistance in obtaining the DS-2019 forms, and applying for J-1 visa.

Frequently Asked Questions

A J-1 visa is a non-immigrant visa issued to exchange visitors participating in programs that promote culture exchange and provide internship/training in the U.S. All applicants must meet eligibility criteria, English language requirements, and be sponsored by a program sponsor.

  • There is no fee for the Host Company.
  • All applicants are well qualified – they have completed at least two years of college education, and some have already had relevant work experience.
  • All applicants are bilingual.
  • Applicants are motivated and committed.
  • All applicants are eligible to receive stipends in the U.S.

We will send the cover letter and resume of one or more of the many applicants we have on file. If the Host Company is interested in an applicant, we will schedule a video interview. After the interview, the company will decide if they would like to offer the internship/training position. There is no obligation.

The majority of applicants take from 4 to 12 weeks from the time they are accepted by the Host Company until the visa process is complete, and they arrive in the US.

The only paperwork we require of the Host Company is a Training Plan, which is similar to a job description. We will provide a sample Training Plan as well as assistance in completing this document.

There is no obligation for the Host Company to provide accommodations. We will assist the participants in finding their housing. We also have homestay arrangement service in available areas if requested.
