USA H1C Category Visa

An H1 C visa is a nonimmigrant visa category that makes possible for a foreign national to go to the USA to work there temporarily as a registered nurse in those areas where health professionals are required. The areas where there is a dearth of nurses are decided by the Department of Labour. If a candidate is applying for a nursing visa, they have to be licensed.

US immigration is not as easy as you think, so it’s wise to consult an immigration agent to seek proper guidance and take advice and guidance for increasing your own possibility for immigration to the USA carrying this visa.
