VISA REQUIREMENTS AND REGULATIONS

To participate on the program and work in the USA, you need to obtain a J-1 visa. CCUSA will sponsor your visa, and is here to assist you through the entire process. Here is some basic information on the J-1 visa.

  • If accepted to the program, your job will be verified and if your employer meets all the visa regulations you will be issued a DS-2019 form, which will allow you to apply for the J-1 visa at your local US Consulate.
  • The J-1 visa allows you to work for the dates on your DS-2019 form (up to a maximum of four months, within your university summer break dates) with a 30 day grace period afterward allocated for travel. You may not work during this time, and you must leave the U.S. by the end of the grace period.
  • You will apply for the J-1 – Work and Travel Visa. This J-1 visa allows you to work in most temporary/seasonal jobs except those mentioned in the Program Agreement.
  • The J1 visa cannot be extended.
  • To obtain the J-1 visa, you must have a face-to-face interview at a US Consulate (Sydney, Melbourne, Perth). CCUSA will advise and assist you with booking the interview and all required documents. You will be required to pay visa application fees to the Consulate.
  • As a J-1 visa participant, you are expected to return home and share your experience of the American culture with friends and family members.
  • You are expected to share your culture with Americans, helping them increase their knowledge regarding places and people different from themselves. Please be aware of this responsibility at all times.
