First and foremost, you must decide which is the right visa for you, which in the case that you are looking for a cross cultural experience in a leading American firm for up to 18 months, the J1 Visa is the right choice for you! Bear in mind that depending on your marital status and whether you have children or not, they too can take part of this experience and tag along under the J2 Visa status; which will be granted once you have received approval for the J1. Something that we know can be a significant factor when considering this opportunity.
Now, think about what your experience level is thanks too the J1 Visa Terminology? And what is the annual salary that you expect to receive from your Host Company? It really all depends on whether you are an intern or a trainee. Additionally, your salary will vary depending on your years of experience and whether you have a degree from a post-secondary institution. Once all of this is settled and you are deciding between the offers that we send to you after you have joined our program and paid the initiation fees, you have to understand the documentation that you will need to receive and that which you will need to fill out and present at your embassy.

You will need these documents in order to start the Visa issuance process and do the interview your embassy.
