Are you eligible for the J1 Visa?
What is the J1 Intern / Trainee Visa?
The J-1 Visa is part of the Bridge USA Program. Taking part on a J1 visa program provides countless opportunities for international candidates looking to travel and gain experience in the United States. The multifaceted programs enable foreign nationals to come to the U.S. to receive on the job training. The program bridges the gap between formal education and practical work experience.
Internship and Trainee programs are designed to allow foreign college and university students, recent graduates or professionals to gain exposure to U.S. culture and to receive hands-on experience in U.S. business practices in their chosen occupational field.
