H-1C Visa - Frequently Asked Questions


Do I have to meet any licensure requirements for H-1C visa?

Yes, you must meet all the licensing requirements for the state of intended employment. The purpose of the NRDAA is to alleviate nursing shortages in health professional shortage areas in the U.S. Facilities and nurses are expected to comply with the licensing standards established by the state licensing board. Facilities are also required, pursuant to Sec. 214.2(h)(11)(i)(A), to notify the Service if there are any changes in the terms or conditions of employment of the H-1C foreign national. The Service must be notified when H-1C nurse is no longer licensed as a registered nurse in the state of employment.


Can more than one foreign national be included in H-1C petition?

Yes, the NRDAA allows for a petitioning facility to include more than one foreign national nurse on a single petition. If the number of foreign national nurses included in a petition exceeds the number available for the remainder of a fiscal year, the Service shall approve the petition for the beneficiaries to the allowable amount in the order that they are listed on the petition. The remaining beneficiaries will be considered for approval in the subsequent fiscal year.
