MAVNI An Advantage For Foreign Medical Professionals With Limited Immigration Options

Posted by Ann Badmus | Mar 13, 2013 | 0 Comments

This program could help many people with limited immigration options, including J-1 physicians who has been in the U.S. for two years and has a U.S. medical license, but are subject to the two-year home residence requirement.  Such physicians could naturalize without completing the home residence requirement nor requesting a waiver.  Nurses could also benefit when they might otherwise have difficulty obtaining appropriate work visas.  Those in TPS status for at least two years could also enlist and naturalize when they might otherwise have very limited immigration options.

Through MAVNI, foreign physicians and medical professionals can become citizens within months of enlistment instead of having to spend years pursuing their Green Card. MAVNI can also lead to faster family-based immigration options. Once an individual becomes a citizen of the United States, they are able to file for immigrant visas or Green Cards for parents, their spouses, and unmarried children under age 21 without having to wait for a visa availability.
