Self-Sponsorship For Physician J-1 Visa Waivers/NIWs

Doctors who seek J-1 visa waivers and or green cards may be able to self-sponsor by opening or buying a qualifying practice. Furthermore, under AC21, physicians that are presently serving their J-1 visa waiver or green card national interest waiver obligation may self-sponsor and transfer the service to a newly formed or purchased practice so long as the practice meets the requirements. Physician self-sponsorship is a fairly complex legal procedure that requires the guidance of an attorney experienced in matters related to physician visas.
