Starting in 2016, Irish students participating in the J-1 Work & Travel USA program will be required to have a summer job vetted and approved before traveling to the U.S.

More Information

What the change means for you?

Irish J-1 Work & Travel USA participants now must receive an offer of employment by a US employer before they will be issued the documents they need to apply for a visa.

By securing a job in advance, students can travel to the U.S. assured they may start working immediately upon arrival, and will be able to focus on experiencing America to its fullest.
