Physician Immigration & Visa Waiver Options

Physician Immigration Visas & Waiver Options:
The law offers foreign doctors (FMGs/IMGs) several avenues to obtain non-immigration visas and to become permanent residents. FMGs who are in medical residency or fellowship training with J-1 visas and that have the 2-year foreign residency requirement must obtain a waiver of that condition before an H-1B visa or permanent residency. Some physicians may qualify for the O-1 visa, which does not require that a J-1 visa waiver be obtained first.
