All H-1C petitions must be filed using Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, at the Vermont Service Center (VSC). If you are applying as an RN, you may not apply directly for H-1C visa. The hospital, sponsoring employer/an agent has to first petition for the H-1C visa. When the petition gets approved, you as an RN can then apply for the visa.
The H-1C petition may only be filed by a U.S. employer hospital (facility) that has filed an attestation on Form ETA-9081, Attestation for H-1C Nonimmigrant Nurses, with the U.S. Department of Labor. For information on how to file an attestation with the Department of Labor, please visit the Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration division.
