Health Care Professionals (H-1C & O-1)
Dallas Health Care Visa Attorney
At the Law Offices of Richard A. Gump, Jr., our Texas immigration practice includes representing a United States hospital, clinic, or other health care facility in obtaining visas for a sponsored foreign medical professional.
Each client must submit documentation as to the sponsored health professional’s qualifications, area of business, and type of work to be carried out in the United States. The sponsored employee must meet visa licensing and credential requirements in order to receive a visa. The health care organization/sponsor is responsible for ensuring the employee meets the visa requirements, including a VisaScreen certificate. This may be true for whatever visa is chosen as the appropriate visa for a health care professional to be allowed temporary or permanent alien residency.
Texas Health Care Immigration – National Interest Waiver
In some instances, national interest waivers allow a health care professional to enter the U.S. without all of the requirements of traditional employer petitions, because of the need in the industry. This most commonly occurs with physicians or registered nurses. Some physicians are given unrestricted license to practice their medical specialty.
If you are a medical organization considering hiring a foreign national to work in the United States, contact the Law Offices of Richard A. Gump, Jr., to speak with a Dallas health care visa attorney. We assist clients in determining the appropriate visa application to file. We work closely with clients through the application process and with any issues arising during or after receipt of a temporary work visa.
