J-1 Visa Lawyer

subp3Doctors, physicians and other medical professionals can enter the country to do residencies and fellowships through a J-1 exchange visa. After the residency or fellowship training is complete, you are required to return to your home country for a period of 2 years. However, there are J-1 waivers that will allow you to stay and work in the United States

At Stanford Law Office, we help medical facilities, hospitals or medical practices secure J-1 visa and waivers for physicians (doctors). Call our Louisville and Bowling Green J-1 visa attorney. Call 502-365-4900, 270-846-1440 or send us an e-mail.

J-1 Visa Waiver

A J-1 visa waiver allows a non-immigrant to stay in the United States to work as long as he or she works in an underserved area. Underserved could mean a medically underserved area or an area that has a health professional shortage.

Bowling Green Visa Waiver Program Attorney

There are only a few sources for a J-1 visa waiver for doctors, and some of the more common waivers for doctors who want to stay and work for three years are :

  • Conrad State 30 Waiver — There are only 30 waivers available per state.
  • Delta Regional Authority Waiver — These are not limited, but only available in an eight-state region.
  • Veteran Administration Waiver — There are unlimited waivers available to work in a VA hospital.

If your waiver is granted, you are committed for three years to working in the underserved area, afterward the limitation is lifted and you can seek an adjustment of status (green card), L-1 or additional H-1B.

Experienced Attorney at Your Side

J-1 visas and waivers are complicated and highly document intensive. You need someone who knows and understands the process. Because waivers are limited, you need to establish a compelling need for the waiver. At Stanford Law Office, we know what information is compelling and persuasive. We have been successful in obtaining waivers for our clients because of our attention to detail and knowledge of the law.
