USA INTERN/TRAINEE PROGRAMME - VISA SERVICE FOR STUDENTS, GRADUATES and YOUNG PROFESSIONALS
The IBA is the Danish Partner for CIEE (Council on International Educational Exchange – www.ciee.org) - the largest and longest-established USA Visa Sponsor. Applicants studying in Norway can also use the IBA for visa applications to the USA.
CIEE is a non-profit organisation enabling students, recent graduates, or young professionals to undergo training in the USA.

What CIEE provides
essential papers that enable the student/trainee to obtain a visa (DS-2019 and Sevis)
insurance – especially important because in addition to usual insurance cover (for example health) it also includes liability in the work place, essential in the USA and not covered by an ordinary travel policy
back-up: 24 hour helpline and advisory service once students are in the USA
Internships/Trainee periods can be paid or unpaid – it does not affect the process, provided the applicant can show that they have enough money for living expenses while in the USA. The internship/traineeship must be seen as training and not ‘work’ – so, when completing the form, the host company needs to present a training plan that fits in with what the student is or has studied. However, this is not difficult to achieve, and IBA staff are able to take companies and student applicants through the process.
There are four main categories of trainee (maximum age is 40 for each category):
students over the age of 18 and currently taking a minimum two years’ post-secondary full-time study programme (this means a 2-year “AP-Degree” or above). This can be for any period between 2-12 months
graduates with a minimum qualification as in (a) above within one year of graduation from their study programme
people over the age of 20 with a minimum 2 year post-secondary qualification and who have at least two years professional experience. The USA traineeship can be for any period between 2-18 months
exceptionally, people with no post-secondary qualification but a minimum of 5 years’ work experience can be considered for the USA trainee programme
All these categories offers the chance for someone to work legally in the USA without a Green Card (which is very difficult and costly to obtain)
There are certain categories of work that are not allowed under this scheme – basically those which go under other schemes (such as teacher training or work that involves physical contact, such as paramedics) – but generally speaking, most areas of work are allowed, and certainly everything in the business, design and IT sectors.
Although there are other USA visa sponsors, the IBA has found CIEE to offer the quickest, most comprehensive and efficient service and once they have accepted an application, in almost all cases a visa will be granted.
