What is the J-1 Visa?

The J-1 Visa was created by the U.S. government to offer foreign university students and young professionals the opportunity to participate in educational and cultural programs in the United States for a limited period of time. The J-1 Visa, or Exchange Visitor Program, is a non-immigrant visa overseen by the U.S. Department of State. More information is available on the U.S. Department of State website

  • If you have already found an internship / training position in the United States in your field of study / profession, congratulations! You have the opportunity to create important business contacts and gain valuable skills in the American workplace. As an official J-1 Visa sponsor, we will issue the DS-2019 form for you.

  • If Intrax sponsors your J-1 Visa, your family members may apply with us for a J-2 Visa for dependents. As a J-1 Visa holder, your spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 may accompany you to the U.S. For additional information and requirements for the J-2 Visa, please see our FAQs.
