J-1 Visas and V.I.E.

A Unique Opportunity for Minnesota Companies!

Host companies have the opportunity to add bright young professionals to their business operations and strengthen their connections to overseas markets. In doing so, they enrich their teams and increase mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and other countries.

Exchange visitors gain practical experience, knowledge, linguistic competency, and cross-cultural skills critical to leadership in today's international business community.  The J-1 visa allows participants in the program to come to the United States for up to 12 months as Interns or for up to 18 months as Trainees.
