SACC-USA Trainee Program

The program is a critical part of the Chamber’s mission to facilitate trade, commerce, and investment between Sweden and the US. The aim of the program, as per The U.S. Department of State’s Exchange Visitor Program, is to promote educational and cultural exchange in an effort to expand the mutual understanding between the American people and other countries.

As an officially recognized J-1 visa sponsor, SACC works with American companies in the searching for talented Swedish interns. The Chamber also provides an organization with the Certificate of Eligibility (DS-2019) which allows the organization to provide a practical training program. With the steady support of SACC, the process is uncomplicated, time efficient, and cost effective.

The benefits for the host companies are endless. The trainees are well educated in their academic fields by the highly regarded Swedish education system, and on top of their familiarity with the Swedish and European market, also have language skills and cross-cultural knowledge. SACC also makes sure to thoroughly screen each candidate to make sure they meet your desired criteria and the criteria for the visa.
