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.

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.
