What We Do

Visa Sponsorship

We sponsor J-1 visas in six categories: Intern, Trainee, Research Scholar, Short-Term Scholar, Professor, and Specialist.

Participant Support

Every participant needs travel medical insurance for the duration of their program. In many cases, this policy is provided by CIEE (in addition to 24/7 emergency phone support).

Host Organization Support

As experts in J-1 regulatory requirements, we are here to answer any questions you have before, during, or after the hosting experience.

Industries We’ve Worked With

At CIEE Professional Exchange Programs, we sponsor J-1 visas in six different categories: Intern, Trainee, Research Scholar, Short-Term Scholar, and Professor. These visas allow us to bring international professionals to host organizations operating in nearly any industry. These include but are not limited to:

Many medical facilities have departmental regulations stating that researches must have a certain level of schooling in order to be offered J-1 Research Scholar visas. While your institution may have its own designation, CIEE can sponsor the desired candidates who are otherwise qualified, but might not fit these specific, internal regulations.

Regardless of how long your venture has been around, CIEE can sponsor researchers and other professionals that will help develop your product and your brand, ultimately improving the longevity of your business. 

Health isn’t a local issue, so don’t treat it like one! Host international professionals with different cultural backgrounds and perspectives in order to spark innovation and facilitate industry breakthroughs. 

Whether your company is researching artificial intelligence, software, or robotics, you too can benefit from creating an intellectually diverse team by hosting researchers and/or other professionals! 

With a global spotlight on the energy industry, the amount of money committed to research and development initiatives within the field have skyrocketed. Host researchers and/or other professionals in order to add a dynamic element to your team!

International interns and trainees bridge the gap between entry-level and more professional positions at your hotel or restaurant; this gives your business the opportunity to provide practical work experience to highly motivated and educated students while gaining a fresh international perspective.

Hosting an international intern, trainee, or professional brings the next generation of business leaders to your organization. Add cultural diversity to your workplace and gain the international insights you need to compete in the global marketplace.

Connect people, processes, and data by diversifying your workplace. International interns, trainees, and professionals bring more than just cutting-edge knowledge to your organization; they also bring valuable cultural insights.

International interns, trainees, and professionals have a wide variety of perspectives, experiences, and artistic skillsets. With CIEE, you can bring a new cultural context to your museum, gallery, design studio, or educational institution.
