Physicians needing to come to the United States may either apply for a J-1 visa (if they intend to participate in a medical education or training program) or an H-1B physician visa (if they intend to work in the U.S. as a practicing physician). H-1B physician visa are a part of the nonimmigrant Temporary Worker Visa category, which means that these visas allow for foreigners to come to the U.S. for work purposes only for a fixed amount of time. H-1B visas are specifically for foreigners that work in specialty occupations (like physicians) that intend to come to the U.S. to work in their field. They are required to already have a higher educational degree in the field of their occupation.
Physicians that wish to work in the United States temporarily with an H-1B physician visa are subject to the same requirements and restrictions of other temporary worker visas. They must first have a petition filed on their behalf from the U.S. company that wishes to employ them. Family members (such as a spouse or children) may travel to the U.S. with their family member physician if they also apply for and obtain an H-1B physician visa.
If you are a physician that wishes to work in your specialty occupation in the United States, an immigration attorney can assist you in obtaining an H-1B physician visa. Attorneys understand how important and advantageous it may be for a foreign physician to either gain experience working in the United States or to offer their individual skills and experience to a U.S. medical facility and U.S. patients. An immigration attorney will help you through every step of applying for an H-1B physician visa, for both you and your family if needed, to ensure the process goes smoothly and you can begin work in the U.S. as soon as possible.Lawyer Referral Service:
