About TraiNet 1.58.000
Welcome to TraiNet, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) internet-based tool for gathering and reporting data on USAID exchanges, training and education, and for maintaining compliance with U.S. Government Visa requirements.
Entering information in TraiNet will create a record of USAID-sponsored exchange visitors in USAID's database, and it is the first step in the process of requesting a DS-2019 visa request form so that your exchange visitor can secure a USAID J-1 visa. TraiNet also allows users to keep information about a participant up-to-date throughout the life of his or her program.
With TraiNet Web you can:
- Report programs consisting of one or more visitors attending one events or training sites in the United States;
- Submit requests to get DS-2019s for USAID-sponsored exchange visitors;
- Update information as required by USAID, the Department of State, or the Department of Homeland Security.
TraiNet Web is USAID's direct link to the Department of HomeLand Security's SEVIS system, and a USAID J Visa DS-2019 form will be generated as a result of the data that is entered. Once the data is entered into TraiNet Web, users will not have to enter the same data a second time into SEVIS.
TraiNet Web also allows you to report In-Country, Third-Country, Regional, and US-Based events.
Once you have assembled the required information, it take less than 10 minutes to enter and submit a complete training/exchange program through TraiNet Web.
