Lisa - Amsterdam Fashion Insitute
J-1 Visa Support

"I had to organise my visa within 8 weeks. I heard from many other people it would take much longer than that. After comparing agencies, IO USA came out as the number one for me. After my application was made, IO USA contacted me very soon. And this continued during my application. I could always ask them anything and receive an answer within a few days and sometimes within a few hours, or minutes! They helped me a lot and I want to thank them for their great service!"


Phil - Rotterdam University
Business Administration Internship

"the service from IO USA was great and helped me a lot. I started late with my application but this was not a problem for IO USA as they contacted companies right away. I now have an inter nship at a M&A Advisor in NYC! Also, their response to my emails was always top notch and fast! I could ask anything and I was assured I was in good hands."

To apply for the J-1 Exchange Visa, you need to have the DS-2019 form. This form is issued by the Sponsor Organization in the United States when your sponsorship is approved. To apply for a sponsorship you need the DS -7002, which is also known as the training plan. In this plan your internship company needs to give a detailed description in phases about your internship, internship duties, cultural activities and supervisor.
