Questions and Answers
I've heard there are no visas for nurses. Is it true?
Indeed, the H-1C visa category for nurses reauthorized by the Nursing Relief for Disadvantaged Areas Reathorization Act expired at the end of 2009 and currently no new visa petitions are accepted. However, the situation may change. Additionally, a nurse may apply for H-1B visa or permanent employment (this occupation does not require labor certification).
