FAQ Work and Travel USA 2022

We are living in strange times and by the looks of it “strange” is trying to establish itself as the new “normal”, thus leaving us no other option but to adapt. The Work and Travel program is no different and there will be a period of adaptation, where new program rules will be established to ensure all participating parties’ safety and well-being.


Since this adaptation period will most probably stretch in time we are trying to be as pre-pared as possible, thus trying to prepare you as well. We have created a list of FAQs, if you will, to help guide you through the Work and Travel program 2022.

Is Summer Work and Travel USA running in the current COVID situation?

Yes! The Summer exchange visitors’ programs exist for more than half a decade already and they have never been paused. Despite of the pandemic and all the related restrictions, in 2020 and 2021 students travelled to the US and participated in the program. Both sponsoring organizations and employers are putting a lot of effort to provide a safe working and living environment for the participants. 

Will I be able to travel to the USA in summer of 2022 if the pandemics situation remains unchanged?

Yes! Although no one was prepared for a global pandemic in the beginning, the world has adapted to the new reality so that business and life goes on in a normal pace, albeit with new rules and safety measures in place. The program runs in a summer time, when the pandemic situation is much better and the enforcement of extremely strict restrictions is very unlikely.

 Considering the situation remains unchanged, is there even a point in participating in the Work and Travel USA?

Of course! It is very likely that we will have to continue living with the new rules for the next couple of years. But you are a student now and you can participate in the program only while you are in the University.

Although due to the pandemic international travel has declined dramatically in the past months, resorts and tourist sites in the United States cannot complain from a lack of visitors. Americans usually travel within their country and have not stopped doing so this summer, so there was plenty of work for everyone.

Besides, the Work and Travel is not just Work – it gives you the opportunity to be in some of the most beautiful and popular tourist destinations and to meet people from all over the world!

Isn’t it better to wait for developments before I sign for the program?

The choice of when to sign up for Work and Travel program is entirely yours. However, it is good to know that both US sponsoring organizations and the US Embassy are functioning with a limited capacity and they can not guarantee that they would have the resources to proceed the applications of all students interested in participating in the program.


We strongly advice you not to delay your enrollment to make sure you have a reserved place in the program, as well as your documents being processed with priority, which is extremely important, when you are planning to depart to the US as early as in May.

Will I be able to sign up if I attend online classes this semester?

Yes, you will! Many of the universities in Bulgaria and abroad will hold at least some of their lectures in an online environment, and others in person. There may be periods in which you will study entirely online. It is only important to maintain your status as a full-time student at the university, which is the main requirement for the program.

Can I pass through the required processes of the program if I am otherwise unable to visit your office?

Absolutely! We can organize all the preparation for your trip remotely, in case the situation requires it. As our customer you will have a personal profile, where you can monitor and manage each stage of the program. Starting with the initial consultation, registration, job interview, filling and submitting the required documents, payment of program, fees could be arranged remotely and without visiting our office. Of course, should you prefer in-person communication we would be happy to see you in our office!

What is the current visa situation?

The US Embassy in Bulgaria remains unable to resume routine visa operations for issuing nonimmigrant visas, that require in-person interviews.


In the spring of 2021, the US Embassy in Bulgaria taking into consideration the importance of the Work and Travel program and evaluating the local pandemic situation, resources and other factors conducted a limited number of visa interviews for J1 student exchange programs.


We will take every good care to have your papers ready on time. We encourage you to enroll as early as possible and not to act in the very last minute.

What will happen if I contract COVID-19 while in the USA?

The price of our program includes health insurance, with a coverage of up to $ 100,000. It also covers the cost of PCR testing and treatment of COVID-19. Our partner CIEE is the largest and most reliable sponsor of Work and Travel and offers 24/7 contact and assistance in any situation.
