The Upside and Downside of Paying or Not Paying The J1 Visa Sponsorship Fees


Teach-USA is a profit third-party agent to accredited J1 visa sponsors. 


Third-party agents charge differently. And the fees do not include sponsorship fees, US embassy application fees, flight fees, etc., yet.


Some agencies charge up to $15,000 — some charge less. Some ask that you pay the price outright. Some you pay when you are teaching in the US already. Some have both options.



FACTS:


Some J1 visa sponsors charge school districts for the sponsorship fees. 


Upside: Teachers free up sponsorship fees.


Downside: If something happens along the way, transferring to another school district will be a challenge. Some sponsors tend to end the program as easily.


Upside: You get dedicated school districts to the J1 visa sponsor because they pay them.


Downside: Competition delimits applications.


Majority of the J1 visa sponsors that third-party agents work with charge teachers for the sponsorship fees.


Upside: If something happens along the way, most of the time you are given up to three times to change/transfer to school districts or states where the visa sponsor has a presence within the first three years of your program.


Downside: You pay the sponsorship fees.


Upside: You get more school district/states choices and options.


Upside: Freeflow.


Everything you do in life causes the effects that you experience. You get to pay the price in the end, somehow.


Exciting times ahead!
