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).

They must possess the required university degree for the job. nurses

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.
