Fort Lauderdale J-1 Visa Attorneys
Helping Immigrant Physicians Come to the U.S.
At Guerra Sáenz, PL, our team of seasoned immigration lawyers are committed to using our extensive knowledge of the law to help immigrant physicians obtain the visas they need to come to the United States to train in the medical field. Most immigrant physicians trying to come to the United States on visas do so under the J-1 Exchange Visitor Program or the Professor and Research Scholar Program. We are familiar with the qualification criteria for both programs and can guide you through each phase of the application process to give you the best chance of being issued the DS-2019 Form you need to petition for a J-1 Visa.
Give us a call today at (954) 466-0323 to discuss your situation with a lawyer at our firm.
What Is the J-1 Visa?
Immigrant physicians approved to come to the United States to participate in an exchange program will be issued a J-1 Visa. Immigrant physicians have to first obtain a “home country concurrence” statement from the Ministry of Health of their home country that explains the country’s need for physicians to be trained in the medical discipline in the U.S. Immigrant physicians must also file a written statement that says they will return to their home country to work in the medical field for at least two years after completing the program.
J-1 Visa Requirements
Physicians from other countries interested in petitioning for the J-1 Visa must meet the following requirements:
- Applicants must prove that they have a residence in a foreign country that they don’t intend on abandoning after the completion of the exchange program.
- Applicants must obtain a Certificate of Eligibility for Exchange Visitor (Form DS-2019) from the program sponsor
