Frequently Asked Questions

I require a J-1 Visa Waiver. Who applies for the sponsorship?

The Keystone Healthcare™ Immigration Team regularly sponsors J-1 physicians for an application for a waiver of the two-year foreign residence requirement.

Which agency will process my J-1 waiver?

The appropriate waiver agency depends on the particular worksite. The various federal waiver agencies (DRA, ARC and HHS) cover particular parts of the United States, and the proper agency will be recommended by our immigration counsel, based on all of the factors relating to your case. Once your J-1 waiver is approved, the Keystone Healthcare™ Immigration Team will submit the H-1B petition and a request for change of status to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service.

I require an H-1B Visa. Who files for this Visa?

If you have engaged in residency or fellowship training solely in H-1B status and if you have never been in J-1 status, then you will not need a J-1 waiver and the Keystone Healthcare™ Immigration Team will file your H-1B petition and a request for extension of H-1B status for your new Keystone Healthcare™ worksite.

When do you file the Green Card application?

The Green Card application is routinely filed by Keystone upon your start date of new employment. The Green Card case normally consists of an application for labor certification, followed by the employer’s petition for the green card (I-140). If you have received a J-1 waiver, you will not be able to complete the Green Card process until you have finished a 3-year commitment to the underserved area. Upon completion of the three-year period, you will be able to file the application for adjustment of status.

What Visa fees are covered by Keystone Healthcare™?

Keystone Healthcare™ typically pays all required filing fees for the physician’s J-1 waiver, H-1B petition and all costs associated with the application for permanent residence.
