Please note that our office remains open, but with limited phone service.

We continue to process your applications as usual and will answer all emails as quickly as possible. 

On June 22nd, the White House issued an Executive Order suspending certain categories of the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program (EVP), including J-1 Summer Work Travel, Intern, Trainee through December 31, 2020.  Participants currently in the U.S. and those who have not yet traveled but have visas are exempted from the proclamation.

The situation could change in the weeks/months to come and we will use this space to keep you informed. 

For more information, you can also refer to CIEE’s website.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
