What Is SEVIS?
The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) is a computerized U.S. government system that collects and manages data about foreign students and Exchange Visitors during their stay in the United States.
SEVIS keeps track of all InterExchange Work & Travel USA students while they are in the U.S. It tells the U.S. government where you live, where you work, and your legal status on the Work & Travel USA program.
All students must register within 10 days of arriving in the U.S. and every 30 days thereafter. If you do not give your information to InterExchange, you risk having your program terminated, which will require you to leave the country immediately, and may jeopardize your ability to obtain another visa to enter the U.S. in the future. If you do not register in SEVIS immediately upon arrival, it may delay your Social Security application and/or prevent you from receiving a Social Security card.
InterExchange will provide you with login instructions for your individual SEVIS dashboard prior to your arrival in the U.S. If you do not receive login instructions, please notify the InterExchange representative in your home country before you depart to the U.S.
