Fees & Policies


Our visa filing services allow us to provide a fast and reliable J-1 visa process to already selected interns/trainees. The invoice of services will be presented directly to the J-1 participant. If any host company wishes to settle this invoice on behalf of the placed candidate, the participant is obligated to inform Placement International.

Our visa services are fast and competitive in pricing. We guarantee a three-week turnaround time on issuing and sending the DS-2019 Form directly to the participants. In addition, we make sure to give them the best orientation for their upcoming US embassy appointment.
