12 Month Work & Travel J-1 Visa Program for America

International Working Holidays 650w 12 month work and travel visa-usa.png

This program is uniquely available to recent tertiary graduates and current tertiary students. 

It allows you to work in America in almost any role (not Camp Counsellor or Au Pair which are different J1 categories).

There is no real working holiday visa for America (when you can work in your choice of job) so this is the closest thing - designed to allow graduates to get work experience in America. 

It's related to our Camp America and Au Pair in America visa - it's the same visa but a different category. This allows you to work in Starbucks, Walmart, Amazon, Fedex, Procter and Gamble, Reuters, Yahoo....
or maybe Facebook or Google! 

The world will be your oyster. Well - America anyway. 

You'll receive full medical and travel insurance as this is a requirement of the visa.
