Indispensable: the J1 visa

If you have made it past the first hurdle and your Studentsgoabroad internship interview was successful, your patience will be needed in completing the visa application. In order to be able to undergo a training course within an American company - an internship - you will need to apply for a J1 visa, it’s a must. Studentsgoabroad will support you throughout the entire process and will provide you with all of the necessary forms and paperwork. However the team unfortunately cannot help you with the duration of time needed for the visa to be processed. But, in the end everyone will get their visa! However it is not unusual for the visa to appear in the mailbox only two days before departure! Luckily your efforts and patience will be rewarded with an incomparable time in the states. 

"Living the American Dream" – everyone has their own recipe

Once the internship has been organized by us, your visa has arrived, then there is nothing standing in your way of achieving the American dream.
