U.S. Senate Passes Bill Recapturing 61,000 Schedule A Visas


Hammond Law Group reported today, in its website, that the U.S. senate formally passed and added a bridge amendment to the Labor Health and Human Services appropriations bill.

The amendment calls for 61,000 visas for Schedule A occupations and their immediate family members. Employers will need to pay a Training Fee of $1,500 for each nurse immigrant. Certain healthcare facilities can have the fee waived. There is also a provision that calls for nurses to attest that they don't owe their native country any financial obligations.
