Australia and New Zealand 12 Month Program

Host an Aussie or Kiwi for up to 12 months!

This program is a special pilot program only for Australian and New Zealand students and recent graduate. Based on the Summer Work & Travel Program, exchange visitors can work and travel in the U.S. for up to 12 months. Past participants have worked in all sorts of jobs ranging from customer service positions to professional occupations.

Program participants are not required to have a pre-arranged job. Most opt to arrive in the US and travel while they look for a position, interacting with potential employers directly and in-person.
And the program is year-round. Program participants arrive throughout the year, not just in the summer months.

IENA takes care of all the paperwork for the J-1 visa and host employers provide a job agreement with details regarding the job. Host employers also complete a survey every 2 months about the program and their experiences.
And like all of our programs, IENA is available to assist anytime you need our assistance. If you’re interested in hosting a student or want additional information, contact IENA for more details at:
