Q VisaS


The Q1 category allows an employer to file for participants in an international cultural exchange program to the U.S., for training and to work for a maximum of 15 months.

In order to qualify as an international cultural exchange program the program must:

  • be accessible to the public by taking place in a school, museum, business or other establishment where the American public, or a segment of the public sharing a common cultural interest, is exposed to aspects of a foreign culture as part of a structured program; and
  • have a cultural component, which is an essential and integral part of the international cultural exchange visitor's employment or training, and which is designed to exhibit or explain the attitude, customs, history, heritage, philosophy, or traditions of the international cultural exchange visitor's country.

The international cultural exchange visitor's employment or training in the U.S. cannot be independent of the cultural component of the international cultural exchange program. The work must serve as the vehicle to achieve the objectives of the cultural component.
