Your Work Permit will not be released until you can provide proof that you have purchased travel insurance that meets the requirements of the state department. It is not required to purchase travel insurnace until after you have signed up for Work USA 12 month. If you have any questions, please contact IEP for further information.

To be allowed to enter USA on a 12 month J-1 visa you must show proof of funds of $US1,000 if you arrive with a pre approved job or $US2,000 without a job offer.
