Effective July 19, 2007, the DOS issued a fi nal rule modifying the Exchange Visitor Program for trainees and interns. The rule establishes a new internship program and modifi es the selection criteria for participation in a training program. The fi nal rule also formalizes the requirement that each trainee or intern demonstrate suffi cient fl uency in English prior to admission in an exchange visitor program. Such fl uency can be established through a recognized English test, signed documentation from an academic institution or English language school, or through a documented interview conducted by program sponsors or a third party in person, by videoconferencing, or by Web camera. Exchange Program Sponsors must screen and enter into written agreements with third parties who assist them in recruiting, selecting, screening, orienting, placing, 5 training, or evaluating foreign nationals who participate in training and internship programs. The fi nal rule also establishes a new Form DS-7002, Training/Internship Placement Plan, which must be completed for each trainee and intern prior to the issuance of the Form DS-2019.
