Understanding the J-1 Visa Program

The purpose of the J-1 Visa Program is to provide international participants with opportunities for professional development, insight into American know-how, and a greater understanding of American society and culture. J-1 interns and trainees are expected to share the cross-cultural and professional knowledge they have gained in the U.S. upon return to their home country at the end of the program. The J-1 program is also intended to allow American businesses and individuals to learn about the culture and expertise of the participant’s home country.
Using the J-1 Visa Program to fill the position of a regular staff member and/or to immigrate into the U.S. is strictly prohibited.

Program Requirements

To be eligible to host a JOYEDU J-1 Intern or Trainee, your company needs to:
Have found an international candidate to whom you would like to offer training or agree to host a candidate proposed by JOYEDU. If you are still searching for qualified candidates, please contact us or post your position on our website – we look forward to assisting with your search!
Provide the intern or trainee with a structured training program that must both be suitable to his or her qualifications and background and be approved by JOYEDU (as required by J-1 Program regulations). We will assist you in developing an adequate training plan (DS-7002).
Ensure that the intern or trainee is engaged in training and does not perform ordinary work that a part-time or full-time staff member of the company would otherwise be responsible for. J-1 participants may not make final decisions about, or carry the full responsibility for, major tasks, assignments or projects. However, they may provide assistance in these matters since on-the-job training is encouraged as an important learning tool.
Your prospective J-1 Intern or Trainee needs to:
Be currently enrolled or within 12 months of graduating from a foreign degree-granting post secondary institution in a relevant course of studies (interns), or have a degree and at least 1 ½ years of work experience in a field directly related to the proposed training (trainees).
Know English well enough to perform successfully in the proposed training activities.
Plan to leave the U.S. within 30 days after completion of the program.
Possess a great attitude, eager to learn and participate in program activities.
