USA Needs to Expedite the Visa Process for Indian Doctors: Law Makers

USA must speed-up the Visa Process for Indian Doctors
Two of the well-known law makers of United States- Congressman Tom Emmer and Congresswoman Grace Meng have promulgated a new legislation that would ask for the state department to expedite the visa granting process for overseas physicians who were recommended to work at the hospitals of America. Presently, all overseas physicians who were slated to serve United States hospitals are undergoing extensive delays in acquiring J-1 visa from the embassies of America in the native countries, particularly in India.

In majority of the instances, the delays have made the American hospitals to withdraw from the foreign physicians who were recommended to work earlier. Law maker Meng noted in a statement that needless delays in the visa grants for international physicians are creating lot of problems for the respective doctors and United States hospitals. Sources further stated that the approval process must be enhanced to make doctors visit the nation in prior plan and proffer medical care that is deserved in communities across the nation.

Emmer further revealed that as most of the American hospitals are experiencing the shortage of doctors, its legislation is planning to surge the healthcare facilities throughout the nation by removing the constant backlog of J-1 Visas. In addition to this he also added that by enhancing the training and oversight at United Stated embassies, they can give an assurance that the Foreign Service officials can process the applications in time by making use of required tools. 

Titled as the GRAD (Grant Residency for Additional Doctors) Act of 2015, Emmer and Meng’s bill would request the state secretary to allocate a State Department representative to streamline the fast-tracked review of prospective individuals of J-1 visa who are about to tour to United States for medical education.

The new measure would also need that the accelerated review is the sole liability of the representative from March to June, as most residency programs begin from July. Moreover the officials of the legislation require the overseas service authorities at the concerned embassies to obtain training associated with the medical graduates as well as medical graduate programs.
