Portuguese nurse , BON wont send documents.

World Registration


Hi there, me and my wife are starting the CVS for NY with CGFN, today we went o my BON, to inform them of our immigration, they told us that they couldn't sign any papers coming from the CFGNS but they could write down a doc in Portuguese attesting our registration status with them and i have to mail it myself.

Will CGFNS accept such document? What should i do?


KInd regards


This afternoon I called the central services of Ordem dos Enfermeiros and asked to speak with "gabinete de relações internacionais" something they've created to deal with all the immigration of portuguese nurses. They were very helpful and were very interested in my situation, immigration to the USA is something new for them and they don't really know how to deal with it, most of the immigration is to europe.

So as requested by them, I will send the email explaining all the situation and they will present it to the directors and hopefully sort it.

They just can't stop the nurses from work somewhere else.

I hope this is useful, their email is [email protected]
