Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to pay for the J-1 visa or can my host employer pay that for me?
Applicants for a culinary program enjoy a free visa with HRC: an astonishing savings of $1,470. Other candidates (rooms division, food and beverage, back-of-house) pay a competitive price of $1,000 + $220 Sevis fee. In some exceptional cases host employers offer to (partially) (pre)pay for the visa.
