It has been a turbulent past year, but our team is back in full swing! We are fully committed to ensuring the best Work & Travel USA experience for our participants this Summer.

On that note, we received plenty of questions about this year’s programme, and would like to share our answers here with you!


Q: Is Work & Travel USA Summer 2021 open?

A: Yes! We are now accepting applications and jobs are available. The deadline to apply is March 15th.


Q: Can I (or is it safe to) join WAT USA during this pandemic?

The USA is leading the race to recovery from COVID-19. Most US businesses are gearing up for an eventful Summer season, so they are still looking to hire students this year! What you see on the news can be intimidating, but much like living with COVID-19 in Malaysia, you have to exercise good judgement and make smart decisions to safeguard yourself and others when working and living in the USA. WAT USA is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Once you leave school, you won’t get this chance again, COVID-19 or otherwise!


Q: Are jobs available? Are working hours affected? How is it like working in USA?

A: We conducted extensive vetting to ensure our host employers are SOP compliant, commits to providing sufficient working hours, and most importantly promote experience and cultural interactions amid the new normal. Due to this, some employers might not be available this Summer, but be assured that the hiring employers on our list have successfully passed stringent vetting requirements.


Q: How can I travel to the USA when Malaysian borders are still closed?

A: Students going on Work & Travel USA can travel abroad. We will provide you with the documentation needed to get travel approval from relevant authorities.


Q: Is there a COVID test requirement?

A: Yes. Within 3 days to departure, you must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19. We will keep you up to date as requirements change or are added.


Q: Do I have medical insurance for COVID-19?

A: Yes. Your insurance has COVID-19 coverage, same as any other illness, as long as it commences within your insurance coverage period and does not fall within any other policy exclusion or limitation. COVID-19 testing is covered if medically necessary and ordered by a physician.


Q: Can I get the COVID-19 vaccine in the USA?

A: You may be able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine during your programme, depending on local vaccine recommendations and availability in the State that you are living in.


Q: I am still uncertain… what if I applied for Summer 2021 but later decide not to go?

A: We understand your feeling… so we worked really hard to get you a revised, flexible payment term & refund policy. Contact us to learn more!


Q: When is Winter 2021 opening?

Winter 2021 will open for applications tentatively mid April 2021.
