Peruvian National Obtains J-1 Visa Waiver to Serve in the Midwest

May 16, 2014 - This neonatologist is a Peruvian national that was on a J-1 visa while completing her residency in Pediatrics. Upon completing her residency training as well as the expiration of her J-1 visa, a practice based in Illinois and Indiana sponsored this physician’s J-1 visa waiver in order for her to work three years with them instead of fulfilling the 2-year foreign residence requirement.

The hospital retained our firm in order to file the J-1 visa waiver to waive the 2-year foreign residence requirement. We submitted the application, demonstrating the hospital’s needs for a neonatologist as well as their failed recruitment efforts to hire a neonatologist for a long period of time. Upon review, the USCIS approved the application on April 23,2014. In addition, on May 16, 2014, USCIS approved the hospital’s H-1B visa application filed on behalf of the physician.
