Each state can sponsor up to 30 physicians each year for J waivers. Almost all states sponsor primary care physicians, and a rapidly increasing number of states sponsor specialists. Most states post their criteria for sponsoring J waivers for physicians online. Click on the name of the states listed below to access this information. (Those states marked by an asterisk do not post their J waiver criteria online.)
The Federal Government mandates that ALL J-1 Visa Waiver applicants must apply for a case number from the U.S. Department of State. This federal regulation requires completing and submitting a Waiver Review Application (Revised Data Sheet) that may only be obtained through the Dept. of State. For information on attaining the required federal case number, please visit http://www.travel.state.gov/waiver_changes.html.
YOU MUST HAVE A CASE NUMBER ISSUED FROM THE US DEPT. of STATE BEFORE YOU APPLY TO MOST CONRAD STATE 30 PROGRAM.
