*As of 17 March 2006, some of the U.S. visa requirements for interns have changed. If you hold an F-1 or J-1 visa and your course of study (i.e. economics, political science, etc.) is related to the type of internship you are applying for as stated on your form I-20, there is no need to make any changes. However, if you are applying for an internship that is not related to your course of study, the Mission will need to change your visa to G-2, thereby canceling your current visa. Upon completion of the internship, the Mission will cancel the G-2 visa, and it will be the student’s responsibility to re-apply for their original visa.
