What is the J1 USA Visa?

The J-1 Summer Work and Travel Programme allows full-time third level students to enter the US on a J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa. This programme allows you to travel to the USA and work there legally for up to four months.

Beware of Scams!

Please be aware that USIT do not have any college reps organising accommodation for J1 participants in the USA this summer. The accommodation options that we have in the USA are organised through our USIT branches or online through We are not affiliated with individuals who are arranging accommodation in the USA. Beware of individuals with gmail addresses and be extremely cautious when organising your summer accommodation and do not hand over cash to anyone who is offering to secure you a bed for the summer as it may not be a genuine transaction. Also be wary of any individuals holding job and accommodation orientations in locations in Dublin or around the country during April.

Any questions or concerns can be made by calling us on 01 6021709 or if you have come across anything of concern, please let us know so we can help inform your fellow students.
