Virginia Still Accepting J-1 Waiver Applications

As of January 23, 2012, the Virginia Department of Health still had 26 slots left – 17 designated and 9 FLEX.

In an effort to improve access to health care for residents of underserved areas, the Virginia J-1 Visa Waiver Program permits interested government agencies to request that the United States Department of State recommend that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service waive the foreign residency requirement in exchange for an agreement that an International Medical Graduate who completes medical training in the United States will practice primary care for at least three years in a federally designated health professional shortage area or a medically underserved area.
