Arizona J-1 Visa Waiver Program
Applications – USCIS Approval
The Department of State (DOS) Waiver Review Division, upon review of the letter of support and related documents from ADHS, will send its approval recommendation directly to the United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The estimated processing time for DOS review and approval is about 6 to 8 weeks. The USCIS review process typically takes between 10 to 12 weeks. The J-1 physician must provide the Arizona J-1 Visa Waiver Program manager a copy of the J-1 visa waiver approval from USCIS once received.
