Extenuating Circumstances for J-1 Waiver Transfer Approved Where Employer was Having Difficulty and Unable to Pay J-1 Waiver Physician
March 13, 2013 - This pulmonary physician had accepted a waiver position in August 2011 in Pennsylvania. Within two years into the waiver service, his employer encountered financial difficulties and was no longer able to pay him. His employer then informed the physician that the contract was being withdrawn. The physician located a HPSA/MUA/MUP qualified position in Texas. We were then retained to prepare and file the J-1 Waiver transfer petition. We submitted the petition on March 1, 2013 via premium processing. The application was approved fairly quickly on March 13, 2013.
