USA J-1 Visa Work and Travel Program

The USA Work & Travel Program offers Ghanaian university students a challenging opportunity to intimately experience life and culture in the U.S. during their summer and winter holiday periods through our J-1 Visa Program.
The work and travel program allows Ghanaian students to earn modest spending money to offset some living and travel expenses during their stay in the U.S. It offers U.S. employers the ability to acquire extra staff to cover busy seasonal positions in peak travel areas of the United States. The J-1 Visa program allows these students to work for up to four months in the United States with a fifth month reserved for travel if the student chooses.
