Maine J-1 Visa Waiver Program
All slots are currently filled. The next application cycle will begin on October 1, 2021.
The Maine J-1 Visa Waiver Program offers a J-1 Visa waiver to foreign physicians who commit to serving for 3 years in an underserved area of Maine, waiving the foreign medical residency requirement and allowing them to remain in the United States. The program is intended to provide physician services in areas that typically have difficulty attracting and retaining physicians.
Primary care physicians, psychiatrists, and sub-specialty trained physicians are eligible to apply for a State-30 J-1 waiver.
This is an incentive program that offers foreign physicians a visa waiver, allowing them to work in the U.S.
