Arizona J-1 Visa Waiver Program
Applications – Submission Period & Review
The application period typically starts on the first business day of October and runs for two months through the end of November. The application process is not on a first-come, first serve basis. You are not guaranteed a slot by submitting your application early. The J-1 visa waiver program manager will review all applications received only after the application cycle has closed.
To ensure that a request for an ADHS J-1 visa waiver will be considered, all required documents must be received by ADHS. ADHS reserves the right to consider applications until all slots are filled.
ADHS reviews each received application for completeness, inclusion of all documents, service site eligibility, the J-1 physician's type of practice or specialty, and adherence to the Arizona J-1 Visa Waiver Program state and federal guidelines. For all the details, check out the J-1 Waiver Program Checklist.
A decision for a letter of support from ADHS typically takes about 10 to 12 weeks. The J-1 physician and sponsoring employer will be notified by ADHS regarding the status of the application when the decision has been made.
