Moonlighting for Physicians with NIW Green Card Applications

Most doctors as well as many legal practitioners are under the mistaken impression that only J-1 Visa Waiver physicians qualify for the national interest waiver green card process. To the contrary, the national interest waiver is available to J-1 or non J-1 physicians so long as they meet the requirements and commit to the required service in an underserved area (HPSA/MUA/MUP). Physicians who are completing their 5 year national interest waiver service may accept concurrent employment once the EAD card is approved. As with J-1 waiver physicians, national interest waiver physicians must continue to meet their visa waiver service obligations to completion.
