    PGY1 going PGY2 - J1 to H1?

    Advertisements



    I am on J1 doing residency in PGY1 and will be graduating in June 08. I am interested in applying another program in PGY2 who are offering H1. My questions are..
    - Can I apply for J1 waiver while I am in PGY1?
    - If so then would I be putting my J1 status in jeoperdy?
    - Are there any slim chances that I might get waiver letter?
    - Any one has any sample letter to waiver application as why I am changing J1 to H1 or USICS does not care the reason?


    If someone you know who has gone through above process and would like to share their expert advise then I really will appreciate it.

    Best Regards,
    Dr. Hunzai.

    US immigration rules do not allow change from J-1 Visa to H 1-B.
    The so called waiver is available to licenced physicians, not doctors who have completed only PGY1. When you get a PGY2, you will have to continue with J-1 visa.

    PGY1 going PGY2 - J1 to H1

    Thank you for your feedback...
    That means new J1 for new hospital? If so then need to contact Ottawa again for new "letter of need"?
