    canadian permanent resident for J1 visa

    Advertisements



    Hi there. I'm new in this site. I just have some inquiries and I hope somebody can help me. I am a canadian resident but a Filipino Citizen. If ever i get a J1 visa can i get the statement of need from the Philippines even though i have lived in Canada since 2006 up to the present. I am not eligible to get statement of need from canada as i have not taken any of the exams.

    No, I don't think so.

    General Eligibility & Requirements

    Foreign national physicians seeking J-1 sponsorship to enroll in programs of graduate medical education (GME) or training in the United States must fulfill a number of general requirements, which are detailed in the application materials. At a minimum, applicants must meet all of the following requirements:

    Hold a Standard ECFMG Certificate without expired examination dates, if applicable.

    Have passed United States Medical Licensing Examination® (USMLE®) Step 1 and Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK); or the former Visa Qualifying Examination (VQE), National Board of Medical Examiners® (NBME®) Part I and Part II, or Foreign Medical Graduate Examination in the Medical Sciences (FMGEMS); or an acceptable combination thereof.

    Hold a contract or an official letter of offer for a position in an approved graduate medical education or training program.

    Provide a Statement of Need from the Ministry of Health of the country of most recent legal permanent residence. This statement must provide written assurance that the country needs specialists in the area in which the Exchange Visitor will receive training. It also serves to confirm the physician's commitment to return to that country upon completion of training in the United States, as required by Section 212(e) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended. (Note: If permanent residence is in a country other than that of citizenship, the Ministry of Health letter must come from the country of most recent legal permanent residence.)
