VIE - French International Internships

We can support your staffing needs

You are a French company or a U.S. company having a subsidiary in France?

Through our VIE Program and J-1 visa package we can support your staffing needs.


The VIE program is overseen by the French government and run by Business France.

It allows your company to recruit highly qualified, early-career professionals from France and other European countries.

Since 2001, more than 80,000 VIEs have been hosted by over 6,000 SMEs and Corporations worldwide.

A winning formula

  • Business France handles all administrative procedures (payroll administration, contract, insurance,…)
  • FACCC works with the host company in the U.S. to obtain the J-1 visas. FACCC can also be the host company if you do not have any.
  • The full cost of the VIE is charged to the French company. The VIE Program is exempt from taxation, the French company is entitled to fiscal advantages and regional subsidies
  • The assignment lengths in the US range from 12 and 18 months. Candidates can be trained in France (up to 180 days) prior to their US assignment.

Business France has a resume database with 35,000+ candidates

  • Graduates of Europe’s best schools and universities (90% have at least a Master’s degree)
  • All profiles: technical, sales and marketing, finance,…
  • Between 18 and 28 years old
  • 92% of VIEs are recruited at the end of their assignment.
