The FACC New York is authorized by the U.S. State Department to sponsor eligible trainees on a J-1 visa hosted by a company member of a local FACC chapter. With this procedure, a foreign candidate who has been offered a trainee position from a company in the United States – member of the FACC network – may apply for J-1 visa at the U.S. embassy in Paris. The J-1 visa allows participants in our program come to the United States for up to 12/18 months for full-time, paid, practical training at an eligible FACC Houston member company. ICDP receives program applications from our member companies, and, upon approval, issues the necessary paperwork for the candidate to obtain a J- 1 visa.
