J-1 Visa Sponsorship (Trainees and Interns)

Global Current (GC) still has plenty of DS-2019 forms available for sponsoring potential J-1 exchange visitors in the trainee and intern categories for the remainder of 2011.

FYI - GC does not assist foreign nationals in finding suitable training or internship opportunities within the U.S.

If you are a foreign national who has already been offered a training or internship opportunity in the U.S. and seek J-1 sponsorship, we may be able to help!

J-1 Program Changes?

As a J-1 program sponsor for J-1 trainee and intern visas, we have heard from an increasing number of companies that utilize the J-1 program regarding upcoming changes in 2012. We are often asked how any such changes will affect their use of foreign nationals for training or internships moving forward.

As of November 4, 2011, the U.S. Department of State has not announced or implemented any new changes to the J-1 trainee/intern programs for 2012. Any suggestions of future changes are strictly speculative at this point.

We do not have any insight into future changes that the U.S. Department of State will implement to the J-1 trainee/intern programs moving forward.

Rest assured that we have been following the developments in Washington very closely and will be sure to keep all interested parties in the loop through this blog.

As advocates of the J-1 program, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the program and how it benefits companies both big and small.
