Conrad 30 "J-1 Waiver" Program set to expire on December 9, 2016

Posted by Ann Badmus | Oct 25, 2016 | 0 Comments

Unless extended by Congress, the Conrad State 30 Program will expire on December 9, 2016. The Conrad 30 program is run by state health departments and allows medical doctors on J-1 visas to apply for a waiver of the two-year home residence requirement (INA Section 212(e)) upon completion of the J-1 exchange visitor program. The Department of State (DOS) Review Division will not accept state health department Conrad 30 waiver recommendations for J-1 physicians who entered the U.S.  with J-1 visas or were granted J-1 status after December 8, 2016. Applicants who entered or were granted J-1 status on or before December 8, 2016, may still apply for a waiver. Congress has consistently extended the Conrad 30 program and will likely do so again.
