According to the current status, program starts for our programs in the USA are possible from 01.01.2021 at the earliest. The J1 programs for the categories Au pair, Work & Travel, Internship, Training and CampCounselor were suspended on 22.6.2020 until the end of the year (with a potential correction within 30 days of the effective date of the proclamation and every 60 days thereafter while the proclamation is in effect). From our side, we are happy to make it possible to postpone the start of the program to 2021 under the current contractual conditions.
However, if you are already in possession of a valid J1 visa, you could enter the USA as soon as the entry ban is lifted by the U.S. government. However, this would have to be done before the expiration date of your visa. You must also make sure that the DS-2019 form contains current program information or apply for a new DS-2019 form from us. Please contact your Program Coordinator for information on how to obtain a new DS-2019 Form.
AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
Our programs in these countries can only take place again when entry is permitted. We will make every effort to contact the participants concerned as soon as possible in order to clarify the further procedure. If you have any questions, we recommend that you contact us.
