* Work & Travel Dates
As per US State Department Regulations the earliest date any participant can start work is 15th May and the latest date any participant can work is the 15th September. The maximum validity of the issuance of a J-1 SWT is four months (it could be less) and you are permitted 30 days grace period on top of this. You can stay in the US during this 30 day grace period as long as you are home before the date when your university/college classes will commence.
You are also only permitted to work and travel in the US within your summer break dates. You will have to enter your university/college summer break dates on your personalised Go4less J1 account. Please consider these dates carefully as these dates will affect the length of time you are permitted to work and travel whilst on your J1 visa. With Go4less you can travel from the 15th May 2015 and must be home no later than the 15th October (so long as you are within your summer break dates). Same rule applies for final year students.
Once your visa is ordered by Go4less you will not be able to amend these dates. These dates cannot be changed whilst in the USA.
