Fast Track to Obtain H-1B Visa is reactivated

Just four months after suspending the fast track procedure to obtain H-1B visas, USCIS reactivated this service as of last Monday, June 26.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said it had restarted the priority processing of these visas for two groups of medical professionals under the Conrad 30 Exemptions program and for foreign professionals required by government agencies.

The Conrad 30 program authorizes some doctors to remain in U.S. territory with a temporary visa, after completing their medical training, to work in rural and urban areas where there is a shortage of doctors. USCIS notified that doctors who comply with the requirements of the Conrad 30 program may complete and submit form I- 60+ 7 “express” processing for the H-1B visa, rather than through the normal Form 1-209.

The reimplementation of the fast track procedure for petitioners of the H-1B visa will facilitate the entry of professionals that are needed in areas of the nation where there is a shortage of these professionals.

When you consult with an immigration attorney it is important that you are able to speak with an actual attorney. No one besides an attorney is able to give you legal advice, even an attorney’s assistant cannot give you legal advice, you must speak with an actual licensed attorney. You must also be able to understand the attorney. The attorney must either speak a language you understand or have a competent interpreter that will allow you to understand what the attorney is saying. If you cannot communicate with the attorney they will not be able to provide you safe advice. Never hire an attorney that you have not spoken with.

Speaking with an experienced and skilled immigration attorney is the first step when dealing with any immigration issue. An experienced attorney authorized to practice immigration law in Dallas, throughout Texas, and in all fifty states can assure that your case moves forward as quickly as possible and is handled correctly.
