Margaret W. Wong & Assoc. Co., LPA is among the nation’s leaders in health care immigration matters. Among the tens of thousands of cases handled by our immigration lawyers are a tremendous number of J-1 waivers and other measures in service of health care professionals and health care companies.
J-1 Waivers: Many health-care specialists enter the country through J-1 visas, which allow exchange of physicians, students, researchers, and other professionals. The spouses and children of J-1 visa holders can enter on J-2 visas.
It is seldom as difficult to get a J-1 visa as it is to get a J-1 waiver. J-1 visas require returning to your home country for two years, but you can avoid this requirement if you qualify for any of the strict bases for procuring a J-1 waiver. Our law firm is among the nation’s leaders in getting J-1 waivers; we know how to demonstrate to the government that you qualify. (See our J-1 Waiver success stories for a few examples of our past work.)
Other types of visas that apply to the health care immigration are:
H-1A: For registered nurses (RNs)
H-4: For spouses or children of H-1 visa holders
Schedule A: For nurses and physical therapists
O-1: For aliens of extraordinary ability in sciences or other areas. (See our O-1 success stories.)
