    SEVIS System (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System)

    SEVIS has been set up by the U.S. government in an effort to keep track of all exchange visitors (J visas) and international foreign students (F & M visas) during their stay in the United States. SEVIS replaced an old manual, paper-driven procedure with an automated one in which real-time; accurate information is updated and maintained through the use of a web-based application. The new procedure has enabled schools and exchange programme sponsors to transmit electronic information and event notifications via the internet to the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of State throughout exchange visitor’s and the student’s stay in the U.S. All the J programme sponsors must comply with SEVIS rules and regulations and keep the records of all exchange visitors up to date by U.S. law. Therefore, it is VERY IMPORTANT that our participants report to us their arrival confirmation and U.S. home address within 7 days of their arrival in order for us to validate their programme in SEVIS and to remain in contact with us for any changes in the programme within 7 days of change. If a participant forgets this important requirement, s/he is going to be in danger of losing the programme sponsorship and may have the programme terminated. At our programme orientation sessions and through programme applications, our participants are given precise details and instructions about SEVIS.

    Our Participants Speak / Testimonials

    Ksenija L. - Lithuania

    I am absolutely satisfied with my training here because I have already got a lot of valuable experience. After this [training program], I will be able to offer to my future Lithuanian employers valuable American-based management and communication skills. Some knowledge and view-points about American social and economic life will also benefit my prospects for a future career [in Lithuania], because business becomes more and more international.
