What is a J-1 Visa?

The Exchange Visitor visa (J-1 visa) was established in 1961 by the U.S. Department of State as a leading public diplomacy initiative to promote and facilitate opportunities for cultural understanding and educational exchange. The BridgeUSA program, as it is known, allows foreign nationals to advance their careers by participating in internships, research and development, workforce development, training, and knowledge-sharing programs in their fields or industries in the United States for the purpose of fostering mutual understanding and collaboration.

As a trusted and experienced leader in the field, Cultural Vistas is a designated sponsor for international Research Scholars, Short-Term Scholars, Specialists, Interns, Trainees, and Teachers who are pursuing career enhancement opportunities in the U.S.

Annually, more than 3,000 individuals from around the world and nearly 600 U.S. corporate, educational, and organizational entities turn to Cultural Vistas as the trusted solution for J-1 Visa sponsorship programs.
