Intern Trainee Program Participants are required to have a Training Plan that outlines specific phases of your training during your J1 program. This plan ensures that you are getting the most out of your experience, enhancing your formal education in a business setting.
During your J1 program it is your responsibility to review your Training Plan often and alert Alliance Abroad Group at any point if you have questions or concerns about your training.
Please contact your Outreach Coordinator with any questions or the Support Team by emailing [email protected] or calling 1-866-622-7623.
You are able to travel outside the United States while on your J-1 program. However, there is Travel Validation process that is necessary to follow before you can leave the country.
Check your visa to see if you have a multiple entries visa
Check your visa to see how many times you can enter the U.S. You can see these by viewing what is written in the “entries” category on your visa. You may see a 1, 2 or M in this category.
- Indicates a single entry visa. If your visa is a single entry, you will not be permitted to re-enter the U.S. once you leave. Therefore, you cannot travel internationally while participating in your visa program.
- Indicates you are permitted to enter the U.S. twice while on your visa program.
Indicates a multiple entries visa. You can see an example of a multiple entries (M) visa in the picture below.
M. Multiple Entries: If you have a multiple entries visa (2 or M), please follow the instructions below. There is always a chance that you will not be permitted to re-enter the U.S. However, if you go within the dates of your DS-2019 form and follow the procedure below, there should be no issues.
AAG will need an email from your host company. The email must indicate that you have permission to be gone during the dates of your trip and that you will have a position upon your return.
Please ask your supervisor to email AAG at [email protected]. AAG suggests you bring a signed letter on company letterhead containing this information with you while you travel.
We strongly recommend when mailing your documents, you request a tracking number and delivery confirmation. For that purpose, we advise using FedEx or UPS service to mail any documents
Your ORIGINAL DS-2019 to be authorized for international travel.
A PRE-PAID, SELF-ADDRESSED ENVELOPE, so we can return your documents to you. It is highly recommended that you use Fedex or UPS for this return shipping.
A short LETTER summarizing where you will be travelling, why you are going and the dates that you will be out of the country.
The mailing address for AAG is:
Alliance Abroad Group
ATT: Travel Validation
1645 E. 6th St. #100,

You should mail these materials to AAG 3 to 4 weeks before you plan to travel so there is enough time to complete the processing and return your DS-2019 to you. Please remember that you will not be permitted re-entry to the U.S. if you do not have the DS-2019 form authorized for international travel.
