You’ve arrived! There’s a lot to do when you get here, starting with U.S. Customs and getting through the airport! Don’t forget to let your employer and family back home know you’ve arrived. And make sure you bring enough money to get started and know where you’ll stay for your first night in the U.S. Remember that CIEE is here to support you during your time on the Work & Travel USA program. Call or email us with any questions or concerns.

Eviction

"Eviction" means being removed from your housing, and there are many reasons your landlord can do this, including: not paying rent on time, making too much noise, or damaging property. If you are evicted from your housing, you should get an eviction notice and be given a deadline to leave the housing.

Do not let eviction happen to you! Be respectful of your living situation. This means paying the rent on time, taking care of your property, and following all of the rules in your lease or living agreement. If you have any concerns, talk to your landlord or the person responsible.

Great program. Great experience. I wish I can do it again some other time.
