J1 – Summer Work and Travel
A J-1 visa is granted to a student between the ages of 18-33 who is currently pursuing an Associate degree, Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree while attending a university or college on a full-time basis.
This opportunity was initiated by the US Department of State in the year 1963. This allows the student to travel to the US at the beginning of the summer period to experience what the American culture is like on a first-hand basis. It also gives students the privilege of working to cover their expenses while in the US. A J-1 visa is usually valid for 3-4 months.
A social security number is granted to the J-1 student upon entering the US and submitting an application at a social security office. This number is used to pay taxes. These taxes are deducted from student’s salary. However, the student will then be eligible for a tax return during the US tax period. In order to be given this opportunity the student must be processed by a licensed J-1 program in their home country, such as ‘ITCE’, this student must have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher (it is highly recommended) to be eligible to be processed by the US Embassy.IF you are currently pursuing a Diploma on a full-time basis from an accredited university or college you are also eligible to participate in the J-1 program.
J1 – Internship
An internship is a temporary position with an emphasis on on-the-job training in order to gain the relevant experience, rather than merely employment, and it can be paid or unpaid. Interns may be college, university post-graduate students. A student can only be an intern in their area of study and must be between the ages 18-35 to participate.
