Exam Failure Insurance

Provided you have no knowledge of your exam results prior to your departure to the US & you have purchased insurance before sitting your exams. Under US Government Regulations, it is not permissible to spend more than 30 days outside of the US.

Exam failure insurance works when and if you find out (while in the USA) that you have failed an exam, you contact SAYIT and advise when you would like to travel home to resit your exams. You also advise SAYIT if you would like to fly back out to the USA. SAYIT will then if possible change your original ticket to fly home and book a new ticket to your original J1 destination if required. If we can't find availability to change your ticket then we will book a new ticket for you to fly home and back out to the USA and you will use the original ticket to fly back home as planned at the end of the summer. You must pay the costs involved in this at the time of the change and then submit your receipt to the insurance company. Only travel purchased through SAYIT is covered by the insurance company.

Note: Only participants who have been invoiced and paid for exam insurance are eligible for claims from the insurance company. It is the students responsibility to check their invoice to make sure they have taken out exam failure insurance.

In addition, we also provide you with...

We provide you with a DS2019 visa application form, which enables you to obtain a J1 work/travel visa. The J1 visa allows you to work during your university summer break for up to four months plus a 30-day grace period allocated for travel. Your DS2019 form is proof that you are authorised to work in the US. The DS2019 validates your J1 visa. We will assist you in completing your Embassy Documents (DS160 form).
