How do I apply
I read the intro, so where do I go from here ?
Step 1: Contact us to arrange a job Interview by filling in the information form under ‘Apply Now!’on this website.
Only contact us/or one of our interviewers in your region to book a date & time for your job interview if:
- You are between 19-29 years old.
- You speak and understand English well.
- You own or have applied for a valid South African passport.
- You don’t use any drugs and don’t have an addiction to alcohol.
- You’re not scared to work hard and get your hands dirty.
- You want to work, travel and have some fun in America.
- You’re independent, adventurous and want to see the world.
Step 2: Interview
After your 45 minute interview, you’ll be notified within 10 to 15 working days whether your job application was successful or not and what the next step will be.
Step 3: Make first H2-b Visa payment so we can book your visa Interview with the US Consulate.
Once you are accepted by Away2Xplore, the first of two visa interview payments is due and payable.
Your first visa payment is $190 - This is about R2 600 – depending on the exchange rate which fluctuates daily.
Step 4: Attend Orientation - Sign Contract
There is a compulsory basic orientation session to prepare you thoroughly for your job, flight, work environment and the various rules you need to adhere to in America during your contract period there. During the orientation session,you will be informed about the various responsibilities you will have while working for a travelling Amusement Park. Miss this? You don’t go!
Step 5: Sign Agreement
Once you have attended the orientation and you have a better and more realistic understanding of the rules and your working environment that lies ahead in America, the Standard Agreement between yourself and Away2Xplore will need to be signed. Once this agreement is signed, we book your visa appointment and set the various wheels in motion so you can travel abroad and take up employment in America or Canada.
Step 6: US Consulate Appointment
We will book your consulate appointment so you can apply for, and obtain your work visa.
Now its time for you to go for your visa interview at the US Consulate - after which you make the final visa payment of $85 (currently about R1300). Please remember that although Away2Xplore has an awesome reputation with the US Consulates in SA and not many of our carefully screened people are denied a visa, the Consular official has the last word in approving whether or not you will get a visa. When your visa has been approved, it will be sent to Away2Xplore’s offices a couple of days later. After it arrives, Away2Xplore will confirm your air travel to America. Once you’ve received your visa you are ... A FOR AWAY so go and pack your bags !!
Step 7: Travel Insurance
Choose optional Travel Insurance to suit your pocket and expectations to cover you for any non-work related injuries or illness.
Step 8: Fly
You will depart to America from JHB to start your overseas working adventure. Most groups leave during February, March and April. All South African Rand amounts are subject to the current exchange rate to the US Dollar.
