Work & Explore USA
We are proud to be able to offer the Work & Explore USA (formerly known as the J1W&T USA) programme to NZ tertiary students and graduates.
This visa is a great opportunity for current NZ tertiary students or graduates to go to the USA for a full year, travel, get to know another country and its people using a visa that is easy to apply for.
After the year that has been, new regulations are that you DO need to have a job offer to apply for the visa. The job has to be approved by CIEE before you can apply for the visa and in advance of travel. A new job placement arranged while in the USA cannot begin until CIEE has fully vetted and approved the job.
The applicant must be either
- a NZ fulltime tertiary student with at least 1 year of study completed or
- a NZ tertiary graduate starting in the USA within 1 year of graduation date.
Our fee for the programme INCLUDING insurance is NZ$2500. We are one of the only companies to include insurance in the fee.
- visa application fee of US$160
- support money for your arrival until you find work or begin being paid.
We require proof of you taking at least US$1200 with you, in the form of bank statements or a guarantor letter.
