Exchange Visitor Program (J1 Visa)

The Lycée Français de New York has been a designated Exchange Visitor Program Sponsor for Teachers since 1961.

Over the past five decades, the Lycée has received dozens of foreign teachers, mostly from France. These exchanges have enriched our participants by allowing them to experience first hand American society and culture, along with its educational system. They act as ambassadors of their home countries, sharing with colleagues and students their own culture and "savoir faire".

Indeed, the Lycée Exchange Visitor Program is a unique opportunity for our foreign teachers to sharpen their professional skills by experiencing a new educational philosophy and to perfect their knowledge of the English language. Once they complete the program and return to their respective home countries, our foreign teachers are able to share their newly acquired knowledge and experiences with their peers, and by doing so, help promote mutual understanding between people of the U.S. and people of their home country. Click here for more information.

Exchange Visitor Program Hotline

To help safeguard the health, safety and welfare of all exchange visitors, there is an Exchange Visitor Program (EVP) Emergency Hotline – 1-866-283-9090 – a 24/7 toll-free telephone number that allows exchange visitors to directly contact the Department of State in emergency and urgent situations.  A Department representative is available 24 hours a day.
