J1 Visa Insurance

Health Insurance for your Internship in the US

You as an intern / trainee on the J-1 visa must be covered by a health insurance plan that covers the j1 visa insurance requirements of the State Department. Before the visa sponsorship can be approved, such health insurance which covers your entire stay in the US must be concluded.

The visa sponsor or placement agency will offer you a suitable j1 visa insurance plan. The full internship placement service fees do not include the J1 visa health insurance plan!

The cost of the health insurance is about US$ 95 per month.
