Let Intrax assist you
You would like to host a J1 intern? Start the application process with Intrax now.
The accompanying paperwork consists of 1) signing an agreement that you abide by J1 visa regulations. 2) documenting your eligibility by filling in the DS-7002 training plan, a DOS document. Next to asking about the J1 intern’s role, tasks, methods of learning and supervision, it requests your EIN, number of employees, address, workers’ compensation insurance and the program dates.
J1 Visa validation call / company visit
If we have not worked with you in the past sponsoring one of your J1 interns, we will ask you to schedule a call with us at your convenience. During the call, we will ask you to confirm the J1 intern’s placement according to the information you have provided. We will gladly answer any further questions you might have.
If we have not worked with you before and your company’s annual turnover is below $3 Mill. and you have less than 25 employees, the DOS requests an in-person site visit. You can obviously schedule such a visit to your company at your convenience. This visit is of no cost to companies.
This visit is of no cost to companies.
Please keep in mind that we cannot issue the DS-2019 form which your J1 intern needs unless we have received your paperwork and spoken with you.
Our service is free of charge to U.S. companies. If you do, however, decide to cover the J1 visa service costs for your J1 intern, please let us know so that we can invoice you instead.
Please note that Intrax is not involved in the decision of financial or non-monetary compensation. We do check that the J1 intern has sufficient funds, $1500 per month, at his or her disposal. This may be via a parental guarantee, private funds, host company stipend, ongoing salary from the company in the J1 intern’s home country or a mixture of all of the above.
Host companies should be aware of the Department of Labor guidelines outlined in "Fact Sheet: #71: Internship Programs Under The Fair Labor Standards Act" to confirm whether or not the internship position should be paid according to minimum wage guidelines. In addition, host companies and participants should consider the cost of living for the US city where the program will take place, as well as the cost of travel and basic living expenses when determining compensation for the J-1 Intern/Trainee.
