US Gov’t urges foreign Doctors, Nurses to Apply for Visa asap

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the US Department of State: Consular Affairs is urging foreign medical professionals to apply for visas.

Especially those doctors and nurses working on COVID-19 related issues are encouraged to reach out to their nearest US Embassy or Consulate and request a visa appointment.

Foreign medical professionals that are already in the states are also encouraged to extend their visas. Medical residents with J-1 visas may also consult their program sponsor, the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), to extend their programs in the US. According to the Department of State, J-1 visa holders may extend their visas one year at a time, up to seven years.
