WEEKLY ALLOTMENT UPDATE
Updated June 12, 2015

Available Webcam Interviews

  • There are no available slots left in June.
  • We have 35 webcam interview spots available in July.

Once you submit your application, use our online scheduling tool to book the webcam interview for the J-1 applicant. In order to allow sufficient time for consular processing and international travel, schedule the webcam interview 4-6 weeks in advance of the program start date. We have a limited number of spaces available per month, so submit your application as early as possible to avoid delays.

DEPARTMENT OF STATE HAS UPDATED
FORM DS 7002

The Department of State (DOS) has released a new version of form DS 7002, the Trainee/Intern Placement Plan for J-1 applicants.  It is now available through our FluidReview application. While the mandatory use date is not until June 26, we encourage you to begin using the new DS-7002 once it is available.
