Work & Explore USA

Work Experience USA  Paid Programmes Abroad With Internship New Zealand

We are proud to be able to offer the Work & Explore USA (formerly known as the J1W&T USA) programme this year 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.

You do not need to have a job offer to apply for the visa so you can arrive in the USA, travel a bit and get a feel for the city you want to be based in and then apply for jobs.  You cannot start a job without the job being approved by CIEE (the USA sponsor).


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$2000.  We are one of the only companies to include insurance in the fee. 

Additional costs:

- visa application fee of US$160

- flights

- 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.
