Applicants applying for The Summer Work Travel (SWT) visas may qualify for a special group processor access if meeting the criteria established by the US Embassy. Please visit https://j1visa.state.gov/programs/summer-work-travel/ to check if you qualify to receive access to the SWT program and schedule the visa appointments as a group.
If you do not meet the Summer Work and Travel requirements or if your group is planning to travel to the United States for any other purpose, you can create an account and schedule through the normal nonimmigrant visa process.The maximum number of applicants that can be scheduled together is 10 people. If the number of applicants in the group exceeds 10 people, you can create multiple groups of 10 or less using the same user account. However, depending on the availability of appointments, there is no guarantee that multiple groups will be scheduled together at the same date and time.
If you think you might qualify for "SWT group" access, a group representative will need to follow the steps below:
- Create an account
- Click on the "Actions" link at the top right
- Select "Account settings" and click on the "Request Pre-approval To Be a Group Processor"
- Complete the request form and "submit"
- Your request will be reviewed by the Consular Section and you will receive an email with the decision.
If you have received “Group Processor” access and require assistance with website technical issues, MRV fee payments, or your login information (email and password) send an email to: Group_Processing_AZE@visaops.net
