On October 1st, 2020, the pause on J-1 visas (originally effective until the end of the year) was lifted by an injunction issued following the complaints filed by several associations, sponsors, employers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce against the presidential proclamation of June 22nd.
Prospective J-1 participants can now, once again, apply for visa appointments but they will still be subject to the travel ban and all restrictions due to the pandemic.
Our Paris office remains open: We can assist you free of charge with your employer search and can process your applications! We have not increased our Euro prices this year (there is a very slight increase in our GBP prices due to the exchange rate) and will continue to fully refund you, should you have to cancel due to eventual future restrictions.
For more information, please refer to CIEE’s website or contact us directly.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
