If you can’t find a CIEE international representative in your country, you can apply directly to CIEE. Send us an email to learn more.

How Does the Program Work?

You will be welcomed as a visitor with a U.S. Department of State J-1 visa. This visa allows you to live and work in the United States for up to four months during your university summer break. It also gives you the possibility to travel for an additional 30 days after your job ends.

Visitors with J-1 visas require a sponsor. As a student in the CIEE Work & Travel USA program, CIEE is your sponsor. We’re responsible for making sure you are prepared to live in America, have access to a good job with a responsible employer, and have a meaningful cultural exchange experience. We also monitor your health, safety and well-being while you are in this country.

You will be working for one of thousands of employers located all across the United States. Your representative can tell you all you need to know about your employment options.

Are You Eligible?

To be eligible for the CIEE Work & Travel USA program, you must:
  • Be at least 18 years old (check with your local representative for specific rules)
  • Be registered as a full-time university student
  • Be able to function in English, both at work and in a community
  • Have a pre-arranged job (CIEE can help)
  • Have at least $800 to support yourself upon arrival in the United States

We welcome students who wish to come back. Ask your CIEE international representative, or contact CIEE for further details to find out if you are a candidate for a second visit.

What’s Next?

If you are eligible, your CIEE international representative will help you with the next steps:

  • Signing up for the CIEE Work & Travel USA program
  • Finding a job

Learn more about finding a job at a CIEE hiring event, getting a job on your own, and seeing what kinds of jobs are available.
