The Intrax Work & Travel USA Program

This program is one of our most popular cultural exchange programs because it’s a great way to experience the American life and culture firsthand to find out what it’s really like to live like an American.

You will gain seasonal work experience, explore the local culture, and travel within the U.S., all in less than four months (program length varies, depending on your country’s university academic dates). With 24/7 on program support, Intrax Work Travel is a wonderful program for the young and adventurous, eager to explore other cultures and those with an excellent work ethic.

Direct Online Application

Intrax Work Travel works closely with local agencies all around the world. Our local partners help to guide participants through the Intrax application process. For countries or regions that we do not currently have a local partner in, we offer direct online application.

How it works? You will be able to submit your online application directly to Intrax where we will review and process your application. You will have direct contact and receive information that’s always up-to-date from Intrax, a US Department of State (DoS) designated J1 visa sponsor. This also avoids any additional fees that are not applicable to your program application.
