J1 ap­pli­cants urged to ap­ply early

Irish Examiner - - News -

The US em­bassy in Dublin has ad­vised stu­dents who wish to ap­ply for a J1 visa to work in the US sum­mer to be­gin the ap­pli­ca­tion process as soon as pos­si­ble.

Be­cause of the pop­u­lar­ity of the pro­gramme among Ir­ish stu­dents, the US em­bassy and Depart­ment of State have worked with the Sum­mer Work & Travel US spon­sor agen­cies to se­cure an ad­di­tional 2,600 J1 sum­mer work travel slots, which means there will be the same num­ber avail­able as were al­lo­cated to Ire­land last year.

For 2018, Ire­land has an al­lo­ca­tion of about 7,000 J1 SWT slots.
