    retrogression f.a.q.

    on november 1, 2006, the department of state enacted retrogression for schedule a nurses and physical therapists. in response to a number of inquiries that hlg has had, we are offering this retrogression faq. please feel free to distribute it to your employees, friends, and colleagues.

    there are already several legislative efforts underway to provide additional immigrant visas for schedule a petitions. relief could be within the next month, or could take several months. however, it is widely accepted that legislative relief will be forthcoming. the united states has declared a national shortage of registered nurses and physical therapists, the resulting delays in filling these positions caused by retrogression will be taxing for the u.s. healthcare system and a major force for legislative resolution.

    edited thread since it is in violation of us copyright law to include an entire article here, as well as for space limitations.

    you may post a link for this. and remember that this is not from immigration but only the viewpoint of one attorneys' office.

    Packet 3 is the start of the visa processing, this is the time where you submit your personal documnetations like the birth certificates and police clearance.
