J-1 visa programs


Foreign students residing in France or in the UK can present their application to the American Consulate in Paris or London without any inconvenience.

Non-EU nationals who decide to apply in Paris or London will have to prove their ties to France or to the UK by providing documents such as: temporary or permanent residence permit, rent receipts, bills, employment contract, payslips, bank references, any other personal reference, return plane ticket to the country of residence or origin.

Your passport must be valid six months after the end date of your summer job.

The US consulate in Bern  requires all foreign nationals (with the exception of EU residents) to apply from their country of origin. You can always call and check directly with the consulate, as rules and procedures change frequently.
