The role of the FACC

The FACC is the only sponsor for J-1 Visa and VIE dedicated to the French-American business community and maintains strong relationships with U.S. and French government officials.

As an official designated sponsor by the U.S. Department of State, the FACC-NYC has 40+ years of experience with this program. Their dedicated bilingual team (French and English) will assist you in the process whether you are a Host Company or an Intern/Trainee Candidate throughout the program.

After carefully reviewing a candidate’s qualifications, experience and motivations, we determine whether the candidate is eligible for the program and, if so, issue the Certificate of Eligibility (DS-2019) to allow the application to proceed to the next step: visa issuance at the American Embassy.
