Visa sponsorship for caregiver jobs in the USA typically refers to the H-1C visa, which is a non-immigrant visa for foreign nurses and physical therapists to work temporarily in the United States in certain health care facilities. The H-1C visa program was created to address the shortage of qualified nurses and physical therapists in certain areas of the United States. However, the program was not renewed by the Congress in 2009, so it is no longer available. There are other visa options for foreign caregivers to work in the USA, such as the H-1B and H-2B visa programs. However, these programs have different requirements and limitations, and the process of obtaining these visas can be complex and time-consuming. It is advisable to consult with a immigration lawyer or an immigration agency for more information.
However, the H-1B visa program is for foreign workers in “specialty occupations” that generally require a bachelor’s degree or higher in a specific field. Caregivers may be eligible for this visa if they have a higher education degree in a related field such as nursing or physical therapy.
