UPDATED EXPEDITED IV CRITERIA FOR HEALTHCARE WORKERS

The Department has just updated their guidance on emergency IV appointments for healthcare workers.  U.S. embassies and consulates now may prioritize as emergencies immigrant visa cases of healthcare professionals who will work at a facility engaged in pandemic response.  Healthcare professionals should review the website of the relevant U.S. embassy or consulate for procedures to request an emergency visa appointment.

If the case is being processed at the National Visa Center (NVC), the applicant may request expedited processing by emailing NVCExpedite@state.gov, including the case or receipt number on the subject line, along with at least one of the following: (1) petitioner’s name and date of birth, (2) beneficiary’s name and date of birth, and/or (3) invoice ID number.

    1. It is hard to say. I fear that when everything is expedited, that nothing is expedited.

    2. Hi, Im also a PT, I used this expedite request last year Nov 2020. Got accepted and approved by NVC after a month. NVC forwarded my papers to USEM. I waited for another 4 months to get a schedule at the USEM. Last April of this year, 2021. We were able to flew in the US. My PD is Nov 2019. So, yes, expedite request would help.

  4. Hi Atty. Do you think that it will help us get an emergency interview appointment if our agency will send a proof/letter to US embassy that the Nurse will be assigned at a facility engaged in pandemic response? Thank you.
