Google Reviews Testimonials

Great professionals, excellent treatment. The best way to get an opportunity in the USA. They guide / help you the whole time and answer your questions. They have a large number of agreements with offices of different types. (Big Scale projects, small ones, interior architecture...) The process to get your J1 Visa only takes 1 month, really fast. 100% recommended.

I still remember the number of addresses I consulted and the hundreds of emails (I don't exaggerate, hundreds) that I went through. And in those it was, when Patricia and Sonia of Architect-US appeared. I don't know what would have happened without their presence, but I do know that with their collaboration and help, with their willingness and dedication, we got what we were after. Thank you Architect-US for all your intervention in my job search process. I insist, let's not hypothesize what would have happened, let's emphasize that with their presence and help everything was better. Thank you!

If you are thinking about finding an internship in the US, Architect-US is what you are looking for. Not only for how friendly they are but for their professionalism and effectiveness. Thanks to them I was able to get my J1 Visa and work as a trainee in an awesome company. Unfortunately, my host company had to close, but Architect-US also helped me really quickly with the transfer of my Visa to a new company so I was able to continue my program.

Architect-US is an exceptional company that helps young people get the necessary visa for a US internship!

Delighted with your service! Since I contacted them, the answers and solutions to all the problems that I have been having have been quick and effective. I found a position in a studio that I would not have even imagined before I started that they would enter and they took care of all the paperwork (which is not small) effectively. Despite all the inconveniences that the COVID-19 situation has brought, they have always been offering their best to help me. Many thanks! I am really happy I contacted them from the beginning. They have helped me find a spot in a studio that I wouldn't have imagined before! Always there helping me in any step from building my portfolio to my visit in the embassy (they even call me a few hours after to check how it was). Sonia and Patricia are charming and they are always glad to help you with any little doubt you have. Even through this COVID-19 situation, they have done their best to sort out any inconvenience. Definitely I'd recommend it!

Highly recommended if you are looking for a temporary position as an architect in the United States. Although the immigration system in the US may seem somewhat complex, Architect-US made it seem easy to obtain a visa and helped me through the entire process from start to finish. Very happy with the service.

Architect-US was extremely helpful in the process of getting my J1 Visa for the US. They were professional, fast and very easy to work with. Very recommended to anyone seeking to do an internship or traineeship in the US.

Super helpful and professional! Sonia and Patricia helped me a lot through the whole process and everything was very straightforward.

If you want to live the experience of working in the US, go to them without any doubt.

Very professional team, very close, and pending at all times of the visa process.

Architect-US really helped me through all the process: they arrange interviews until you got the offer and the J1 Visa! Awesome!

Through Architect-US exceptionally fast & professional help, I had successfully trained & worked in Orlando, US.

I could not imagine in the first moment how difficult was to prepare all the documents if you do it alone. Architect-US had an important and essential role in all the Visa, helping and orientating in all the phases, anticipating all the steps and making you comfortable with all this new situation. They care about everything. From the very beginning, they gave me an overall view of all the steps. Finally, I was calm and confident. Yesterday I received my passport with the visa printed on it. I am ready!

A process that would otherwise be very long and tedious is solved in a practical and efficient way thanks to Architect-US. Very close and professional personal treatment. 100% recommended if you want to live the experience of living in the USA.

Architect-US helped me polish my portfolio and CV and got me in touch with firms in the US that matched my professional aspirations. After I got an offer, they guided me through the whole visa application process making sure everything went smoothly. True professionals!

Very close and personalized treatment from the first moment. Fast and efficient. Without doubt the best choice to process my J1 Visa.

The Architect-US team was constantly in touch and helped me throughout the J1 Visa process, answering all my questions. These people are professionals. They do their job very well and quickly. I found the internship myself. But they also helped me find a company for an architectural internship.

I highly recommend Architect-US if you are looking for a professional experience in the USA. They make the whole process very easy and quickly, always helping you with every question you may have.

Architect-US Career Training Program is one of the best agency in order to do internships or training with the Visa supported. They have many types of plans to get great experience, so you should apply for it!

Architect-US was very helpful through the whole process. They not only found me a job that I really enjoy in NYC, but also took care of all the documents and communication with my future employer. I recommend them to any architect looking to get started with their career in the USA.

Very professional and nice service. I had the best experience of my life working and living in the US for one year and a half and Architect-US made everything very easy and they were extremely helpful assisting me. I absolutely recommend this company if you are thinking of working in the US!

I had a great experience organizing my trip with Architect-US. Totally recommended if you want a nice cultural exchange experience and training abroad. They will keep it simple for you, and also helping you with your doubts and questions as soon as possible.

I strongly recommend the Architect-US agency. It was thanks to them that my process for the J1 Visa, a cultural exchange visa with the USA, was carried efficiently and clearly. If you are thinking of doing an exchange in your area, this agency will help you and accompany you in everything. 5 stars. :)

I had a very good experience with Architect-US Career Training Program! They were very helpful throughout the process which can be quite stressful at times. Through their help I received my Visa to train in the US and am very excited to start my career experience next week. I can highly recommend them!

Thank you Architect-US for helping me throughout the journey. It is a remarkable company which you can definitely rely on for your visa sponsorship. Thank you Sonia for your guidance, I really appreciate it. Looking forward to my American dream. :)
