|Through the Norway-America Association, Norwegian citizens can apply for the American-Scandinavian Foundation's Exchange Visitor (J visa) Program, designated by the U.S. Department of State, which gives Scandinavians the unique opportunity to receive practical on-the-job experience in the U.S. and to grow professionally and personally through immersion in American business and community life.
Note: Although Exchange Visitor interns and trainees may receive income, this is not a work program and ASF cannot help anyone seeking a “work permit.” Rather, the emphasis is on learning and international exchange. The intern/trainee is considered an unofficial ambassador of his/her country. Following the program the Exchange Visitor is expected to return home.
If you are thinking about applying, please contact Mari Strømsvåg (mari @ noram.no) for information.
Our partner in the US, American Scandiavian Foundation, are currently going through some changes to the application proccess, so please contact Mari for updated information.
