The Exchange Visitor (J) non-immigrant visa is for individuals approved to participate in work and study based exchange visitor programs.  The Exchange Visitor Program fosters global understanding through educational and cultural exchanges.  All exchange visitors are expected to return to their home country upon completion of their program in order to share their exchange experiences. 

Sagamore Institute has been approved by the State Department to issue the J-1 Teacher visa.  For more information on the programs, visit j1visa.state.gov/basics/. For information on the teacher program, visit https://j1visa.state.gov/programs/teacher.

"The pandemic has allowed us to extend our voluntary service to the students and the community which helped me to realize the very core of teaching...not just purely imparting knowledge but also touching lives."
JT, Exchange Teacher from the Philippines
