COVID-19 (last updated on Monday, March 16th, 2020)
In order to respect the confinement directives set forth by the government, our office and phone lines will be exceptionally closed until further notice and we will function with a very reduced staff.
We will continue to process your applications as usual and will answer all emails as quickly as possible. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
Parenthèse and CIEE confirm that all exchange programs in the United States under the J-1 Intern, J-1 Trainee, and J-1 Summer Work and Travel USA visas are maintained despite the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
However, due to the travel ban recently announced by the Trump administration, all departure dates to the U.S. for J-1 visa participants must be postponed to May 11th, 2020 at the earliest.
