Immigration laws recognize that there is a shortage of nurses and physical therapists in the United States, and they are deemed to be schedule A professionals. Therefore, nurses and physical therapists do not need to perform the traditional test of the labor market required of most other positions. As long as a nurse or physical therapist has an employer who wishes to sponsor them for permanent residency they may file a visa petition directly with USCIS and bypass the Labor Certification process. Nevertheless, certain requirements must be met before nurses can move forward with their petitions.
Nurses are required to be fully licensed or able to become fully licensed in the United States prior to beginning the visa petition process.
First of all, I want to thank Brittni Rivera for helping with my case. Ever since the first day she was working on my case, every time I asked for an update, she would respond quickly. Brittni handled my case with great professionalism and a great outcome. I would highly recommend working with Kriezelman Burton & Associates.
I can not recommend Kevin Raica and Justin Burton enough. They are the lawyers who get their job done. Super professional, organized and always on point!
Incredibly thankful to have been referred to Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC. Erin Cobb and her paralegal Kamila were responsive, helpful, and professional. I really couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome of my case. Highly recommend!
