J-1 Visa Program

The Nevada Conrad 30 J-1 Visa Waiver Program agrees to waive the “two-year home country physical presence requirement” by sponsoring J-1 Physicians who agree to serve in federally designated shortage areas. The program addresses the shortage of qualified providers for the Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA), Medically Underserved Area (MUA), and Medically Underserved Population (MUP) An application fee is required to process J1-Visa applications, and facilities often incur an expense to sponsor physicians to serve in that capacity with attorney fees. This is a significant barrier to entry into the program and minimizes Nevada’s ability to attract physicians and specialists to serve in the state. Funding is currently available for J1-Visa applicants! Learn more by visiting the program site below.
