Physicians and Healthcare Workers
Physicians may immigrate to the U.S. through the national interest waiver and labor certification processes referred to in the employment-based permanent residency section of our website. Additional options may be available to physicians not engaged in patient care through the extraordinary ability and outstanding researcher categories. Physicians who received medical training in the U.S. may be required to obtain a waiver prior to pursuing employment sponsorship in the U.S.
Healthcare workers including nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists and audiologists, medical technologists and technicians, and physician assistants may also be able to obtain a U.S. work authorized status. The law in this area is complex, with both nonimmigrant and immigrant visa options available for some positions.
