  • We give you advice on Visa Compliancy

What You Gain As An Intern/Trainee

This is a great opportunity to get 6-18 months professional training in the USA with a detailed training plan to hep you advance in your field. This is professional training in your area of qualification and/or previous experience.

You will be able to network with professionals in your field, in conjunction with a unique opportunity to enhance and progress your CV.

The company has an obligation to offer you integration into US culture as part of your placement. You will be engulfed in American culture throughout your experience.


Unlike every other Irish Visa agent, TravelBug Ltd. don't tie you into flights! Our motto is B.Y.O.F. Yup, thats Buy Your Own Flights! This saves, on average, €250 per applicant!

We offer a transparent pricing system: What you see is what you get!

This programme allows you to arrange your internship before you arrive in the USA.

Why is this important? Many visa companies are offering walk in style visas.

What's wrong with that? There are a few issues here:

Some internships in the USA are unpaid placements as US students often do internships as part of their educational development.

The State Department has strict rules that you and your sponsor need to adhere to. This involves a lot of research and paperwork. You have limited time to complete this paperwork. If you cannot find an internship within the sponsor's allotted time then this can result in your programme being terminated.

With Our Programme

You have the peace of mind of securing your internship/traineeship all organised and sanctioned before you go.

You don't have to waste your first number of weeks/months in the USA stressing out and trying to organise your internship/traineeship (while your bank balance goes in the wrong direction!)

3-Point Payment Plan

1. Pay €50 registration to cover preparation assistance

2. Pay €299 to cover assistance with Sponsor Application and Host Company Training Plan (needed for the Embassy)

3. Once the Sponsor approves your documents, you pay the balance
