Eb3(Immigrant Visa) vs. Working Visa

  1. 0
    Hi guys!&nbsp;<br>Just want to ask if you have an idea regarding this one:&nbsp;<br>Is it possible for an employer (hospitals/nursing homes) to apply working visa for a nurse even though the nurse had an ongoing immigrant visa application? Could that be granted for the nurse? hope to hear from you soon! thanks!<br><br>

    If you are able to find a employer willing to go the H1b route and you have a immigrant visa on going I see no reason you will be denied however there is no guarantee and it is a risk you take. Probably best to ask a immigrant lawyer

    hi i have a question...

    i was applying at ohio, and i just had my interview last night through skype.. I think my employer is interested to get me.. She asked me what do i need to get there, i said i need a visa, working or immigrant visa.. I just knew that it is better if i choose working visa because it will only take like a year to process unlike immigrant will take several yrs. Am i correct?

    what are the chances of having working visa? do i need or is it better to look for a lawyer to work on papers??? because my employer told me that it was their first time to hire a nurse from different country ( philippines) so it seems like they dont know yet what to do,, i wanted to give them information about these to help them. So anyone here pls help i will appreciate it.thanks

    Does the job require BSN and if it does then the employer has to prove that?

    hi silverdragon

    what do you mean it requires BSN? i graduated BSN here in philippines... the employer has the photocopy of my credentials, like the transcript of record etc.

    For H1b the job must be a minimum of BSN and advertises as a BSN requirement. If the Federal department believes that the job can be done by a ADN then they may refuse the H1b

    Most dialysis centers in the USA only require a RN not RN/BSN. Plus you will not have any work experience, short answer - no.
