Message to J-1 VISA Physicians: The best way to practice in AR as a J-1 VISA candidate is to directly contact the Arkansas hospitals or clinics of interest to you.  Discuss directly with them their employment opportunities.  If a hospital/clinic writes they are "not a J-1 Visa site", please respect their statement and do not call them.  They know if they meet the criteria requirements.  The best use of your time is to only contact those sites that are eligible.

Please do not contact the J-1 Primary Care Office yourself.  Waivers are not issued directly to practitioners.  When you receive a job offer, the hiring facility or your immigration attorney will contact the J-1 Office to obtain the waiver on your behalf.
