What is the J-1 Summer Work Travel Exchange Visa? Why choose Work Experience USA?

The J-1 Cultural Exchange visa program is under the auspices of the US Department of State. The program is considered to be an important part of the public diplomacy efforts of the USA. Created to foster global understanding through educational and cultural exchanges, all exchange visitors are expected to return to their home country upon completion of their program in order to share their exchange experiences.

The Summer Work Travel J-1 is not solely a work program but must include a strong cultural component which will expose the participant to American culture. As such, the program does have many restrictions on the type of work that participants may do. CCUSA Work Experience will guide you through all the complexities of the program.

Why choose Work Experience USA?

Work Experience USA will provide you the following:

  • A free Employer Web Access account. You will be given a password which will enable you to update your information at the beginning of each season.
  • Qualified, educated, and hardworking international participants.
  • Choice of multiple hiring options via Job Fair, Skype Fair, or Placement.
  • No obligation to hire. You make the final hiring decision on every application.
  • Add an international element to your company.
  • Access to the Employer Support site with lots of helpful information about taxes, visa details, and much more to help you integrate your international staff.
  • CCUSA issues documents for all participants to obtain a J-1 work/travel visa for work in the United States. CCUSA also provides mandatory travel medical insurance for each participant.
  • Friendly and efficient customer service from the CCUSA Work Experience staff.

Participants must pass through our selective screening process before being accepted to the program. Participants are also required to attend a pre-departure orientation before leaving their home country.  Among the many topics covered in this mandatory pre-departure orientation are:  US labor laws, J-1 visa regulations, instructions on how to apply for a social security card and tips on filing tax returns with the IRS.

Participants varied visa dates depend upon the approved US Department of State program dates for each country, as well as the individual participant's university break and availability dates.
