English Exams for VisaScreen are required for health care workers seeking TN status, H-1B visas and green cards through their employment. However, VisaScreen certificates are not required if the healthcare worker is seeking a green card through non-employment-related means: through marriage, through relatives, through investment, through asylum or through the green card lottery.

Similarly, if the health care worker is working pursuant to Curricular Practical Training (CPT) or post-graduation Optional Practical Training (OPT), a VisaScreen certificate is not required. The same is true if the healthcare worker has obtained an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) as an H-4, L-2 or E-2 spouse or has obtained an EAD through TPS, asylum or through one of many other immigration programs.
