Work & Travel USA

Work and Travel is an international cultural exchange program that allows students from different countries to visit the United States to work and travel. The purpose of this program is to give students a chance to get acquainted with the American lifestyle and culture. Initiated by the US State Department in the 1960s, the Work and Travel program is now the easiest way to travel to the United States as a student.

For students in Romania, the Work and Travel program, through the J1 visa, starts on June 15 and ends no later than October 31 (when you must already be home), October being reserved exclusively for travel - any extension can affect you in first, a possible departure the following year.


Conditions for participation

In order to be able to go to the States through the Work and Travel program, you must:

  • Be a full-time student, master's or doctoral student;

  • Be enrolled in a state or private faculty, accredited or in the process of accreditation;

  • You are not more than 30 years old;

  • You know English at an intermediate level;

It doesn't matter if you are a freshman or a freshman. Starting with 2010, the United States Embassy has relaxed the conditions for participation and the good grades and the fewest arrears do nothing but help you.

When to register

The short answer is: "As soon as possible!"

Long answer: The list of good jobs is shortening every day. The whole process, from enrolling in the program to the visa interview, takes quite a long time. How the bureaucracy is in power everywhere - There are quite a few forms to fill in, documents to bring and the session is coming! We are also sure that you want to be relaxed before the visa interview.

The Embassy of the United States of America recommends starting the whole process as soon as possible, in this regard receiving appointments for the interview starting with April.

The stages

  • You pay us a visit and we talk about America [and not only]. At the same time, you choose your option. Have the bulletin with you because if you have decided, leave us already enrolled in the program.

  • You choose where you want to go and you choose your job, if you don't already have one.

  • An intermediate step - Complete your file as soon as possible.

  • Go to the visa interview.

  • You get your plane ticket.

  • After going through the orientation and information session, you cross the ocean and you have arrived in the States.
