Health Care Professionals

Health Care ProfessionalsImmigration Attorney Shusterman describes the process of obtaining working visas (H-1B) and permanent residence (green cards) for allied health care professionals including medical technologists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, audiologists, dietitians and nutritionists.

Our law firm represents over 100 hospitals and health care providers across the United States.  We have obtained H-1B visas and permanent residence for thousands of health care professionals over the past 30 years.

Our website also contains a Physicians Immigration Guide and a Nurses Immigration Guide.

Persons in all of the above occupations are eligible for temporary professional H-1B work visas.  They must be sponsored by an employer in the United States, and paid at the prevailing wage for similarly situated US workers.

They must be licensed in the state of intended employment (or be ineligible for a state license solely because they lack social security numbers).

Nurses Immigration Guide

They must possess the required university degree for the job.

In addition, they must obtain a VisaScreen certificate.  This certifies that their education is equivalent to the required degree in the U.S. and that they are proficient in English.  They must obtain a VisaScreen certificate even if they received their professional education in the United States.

 

To obtain a green card, the employer must demonstrate that it is unable to find a qualified US worker for the health care professionals job.

 

“I would like to thank the attorney Amy Prokop and the paralegal Ana Cruz for helping me with my green card application process. Although I am still in the process of receiving my green card, I really had a great experience with them. Both of them are very patient with my frequent questions. Amy is also very proactive. She initiated a few meetings with my company, which encouraged my company to finalize my green card process. Ana is very helpful too. She always replies my emails right away or at least in a timely manner. I truly recommend this law office for the healthcare professionals who want to become permanent residents…” (More client reviews…)
