Paid Internships in the USA – the J1 visa: We specialize in this !

What is the J1 visa?

The J-1 Exchange Visitor Programme was established in 1961 by the US government. The purpose is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through educational and cultural exchanges.

The J-1 Trainee and Internship Programmes provide international participants with a hands-on opportunity for professional development, insight into American know-how in the field of training and increase their professional marketability. The programme is an excellent way  to prepare for the future in a world that is increasingly dependent upon cooperation and understanding of various cultures.
