April 14, 2023

Are you ready to learn more about how we at Avant Healthcare Professionals help you receive your Visa Sponsorship before working in the U.S.? At Avant, we are dedicated to making long-term matches between our qualified, internationally educated healthcare professionals (like you!) and our client healthcare facilities in the U.S. We specialize in recruiting international registered nurses as well as physical and occupational therapists who aspire to have a career in the U.S. by making their American dream come true! Our mission is to provide international healthcare professionals with step-by-step support, helping you navigate the licensure and immigration processes quickly. We want to ensure you are one step closer to making your dream a reality. Our experienced team of administrative, licensing, visa and clinical professionals are available to all our healthcare professionals. They are there for you no matter your question about the process. If you have any concerns about social and cultural transitions before, during, or after you arrive in the U.S., our experts are ready to help!

The Process

Now, applying for a Visa Sponsorship is a complicated and long process, but with Avant, it doesn’t have to be! Our team at Avant Healthcare Professionals will guide you through the overwhelming but necessary licensure and visa process. This is why you need a staffing agency that you can trust to take care of this process for you. At Avant, we have over 20 years of proven experience and treat all our healthcare professionals equally when assisting with documentation. We accomplish this through our NCLEX-RN preparation program, clinical transition programs, clinical internships, and a social and cultural transitioning program so you can feel comfortable and ready when transitioning to your new facility.

Before receiving a U.S. green card sponsorship, we help our healthcare professionals pass the NCLEX exam and obtain their U.S. license. Next, we will sponsor and process an employment-based visa with the USCIS for you. The immigrant visa or "green card" is the primary visa for international nurses like you. The immigrant visa has many advantages, such as spouses and other dependents having the ability to work and attend public schools in the U.S. So when you work with Avant, we make sure your family stays together, meaning you get to live your American dream with them by your side! Avant has assembled a team of immigration attorneys and in-house staff to process and closely monitor the visa filing and approval process for healthcare professionals. We also have immigration specialists assigned to individual cases, so they will ensure you are updated on your progress every step of the way.

The 10 Steps to Your Green Card with Avant Healthcare Professionals are:

1. File Green Card 

2. Get Green Card Approved 

3. Fee Bill - Immigrant Visa Fee

4. Packet 3 - DS-260/ Civil Document Submittal

5. Final Processing
