Save the J-1 Visa Program

Save the J-1 Visa Program

The popular and beneficial J-1 Exchange Visitor Program which has allowed thousands on international participants to work in the USA is currently under evaluation by the current Trump administration but there are so many reasons why it should be saved. Learn more about the J-1 visa and what you can do to help keep it running.

Every year, thousands of people from all around the world apply to work in the USA as part of exchange programs including summer camp counselor jobs, summer work and travel USA, au pair USA, traineeships and USA internships.

US president Donald Trump has signalled he is keen to make changes and cuts to the current J-1 Exchange Visitor Program which is going to have a negative effect both in the USA, and worldwide.

There is currently a review of U.S. immigration and cultural exchange visas as part of President Trump’s 'Buy American, Hire American Executive Order' which is looking to ensure that the interests of domestic workers are protected. We expect more announcements in the pipeline, which is is sadly likely to be more information about the ending, or restricting of the J-1 visa program.


Benefits of the J-1 Visa Program

J-1 cultural exchange programs which are under threat have been open for decades and it would be devastating to end or restrict them.

The J-1 Exchange Visitor Program is beneficial to both the USA and also worldwide participants. Companies in the USA are able to hire short term temporary workers to fill thousands of seasonal jobs in the USA which come available at popular times of the year including summer. This boosts local economies and helps companies and summer camps to operate during peak times of the year.

International staff get the opportunity to live and work in the USA, get paid, boost careers, make new friends, experience the American way of life and see world famous sights like New York City. Taking one area of the J-1 visa, summer camp jobs in the USA, camps hire staff from all around the world allowing campers and domestic staff throughout the States to learn more about the outside world and different cultures, countries and people. People also make friends for life and Some people become friends for life and take the opportunity to travel abroad to visit friends and continue this cultural exchange.
