SACC-USA J-1 Trainee Program
The SACC-USA Trainee Program provides U.S. companies with highly qualified trainees from Sweden. Consider this a cost-efficient way of accessing Swedish talent and technology while adding some cultural diversity to your office. For the trainees, a training program in the U.S. is the opportunity of a life time. Talk about win-win!
SACC-USA is a J-1 visa sponsor designated by the U.S. Department of State. This means that SACC-USA is authorized to issue the document DS-2019 which a Swedish trainee needs to take to the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm to receive a J-1 trainee visa.
The SACC-USA Trainee Program and J-1 visa service can be used for everything from summer internship for a student from Sweden to a longer training program for someone who has just graduated to an 18-month visa for a Swedish employee in a rotation program. Use of the Exchange Visitor Program for regular employment or other work purposes is strictly prohibited.
There are five broad types of trainees in our program:
- Trainees who have found a host organization with SACC-USA’s help
- Trainees at SACC Regional Chambers
- Trainees who have found a host organization on their own
- Swedish students writing their Bachelor or Master´s theses for a U.S. company
- Employees of Swedish companies who need to go to the U.S. for training with a mother company, subsidiary or business/joint venture partner
