Overview of EB-3 Visa Application Procedure

The way toward getting a green card for nurses can be challenging, so we've made a free immigration sponsorship process for international nurses that we oversee from application through endorsements. Here's the means by which it works.

01 stage

02 stage

We File a Petition

Once you pass the NCLEX, We will file an I-140 petition to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on your behalf. The petition includes forms, as well as information about your nursing background and about the Assigned Facility as an employer.

03 stage

Petition is Processed

All petitions to meet EB3 visa requirements are either: "Approved", "Denied", Trigger a "Request For Evidence" (RFE) a.k.a more information. Because of our legal expertise, most of our petitions result in approvals. Sometimes we receive RFEs that delay the process, but our petitions are ultimately typically approved.

04 stage

Receive a Priority Date

Once your petition is approved, USCIS assigns you a priority date, which puts you in line for a visa. These are first-come, first-served, however nationality does factor in as some countries have greater demand for immigration. The USCIS releases a monthly bulletin with this information, which we tracks and shares.

05 stage

Visa Stage

You then go to the National Visa Center (NVC). Once we have your NVC documentation, we will pay the visa processing fee on your behalf. The NVC stage procedure is currently up to you to finish. If NVC wants further paperwork or if you have any issues, we'll be here to help, which can cause further delays.

Reminder: Prepare your VisaScreen Certificate. CGFNS International will carry out a thorough screening to determine your eligibility for a permanent resident visa. You'll need to bring this VisaScreen to your embassy interview.

06 stage

U.S. Embassy Interview

The last step is to attend an interview. We will prepare you fully with documents, a medical exam, and information about what you can expect in the interview.

07 stage

Move to the U.S.

Once you pass the interview, you’ll begin the process of moving to the U.S, get your green card, and begin your career with the assigned facility.
