This is a friendly reminder that with the holidays nearing, your student may request to travel with family from home or ask their family to come to the US for Christmas. Though we understand the challenges of spending holidays away from home for the first time, we want our students to take this opportunity to experience American holidays with their host family and in their community.
As a reminder, CIEE has a travel policy for 10-month J-1 students where visits with family from home are only allowed after January 1st . Our semester students are not allowed to receive visits from home while on the program. For a complete list of CIEE J-1 program rules, please click on the following link:
If you have any questions about our travel policy, please don’t hesitate to contact either your Local Coordinator or Support Coordinator at 1800-448-9944.
