“Vermont consistently ranks in the top states for equality, low crime rates, health care access, education, quality of life, and low unemployment rates. Vermont is a cozy, rural state with bordering communities in New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Canada. For a smaller state, Vermont has a lot to offer with a very lively arts culture, a healthy farm to table way of life, and a strong population of socially responsible and community-minded residents.”

J-1 Visas in Vermont

J-1 Visas in Vermont

If you want to obtain a J-1 Waiver in Vermont, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Start your job search about 18 months prior to when you want to start working.
  2. Find a job at an eligible J-1 site in our state. You can search for J-1 eligible jobs on 3RNET. Start your J-1 job search in Vermont now.
  3. Connect with the J-1 contact to ask questions and learn about additional steps you may need to take.

A limited number of J-1 Visa Waivers are granted to non-resident physicians who agree to work in an underserved area of Vermont for a period of three years. Vermont prioritizes primary care specialties, but considers waivers for all specialties that provide direct patient care and based on community need and shortage designation. There are 20 slots available for providers to practice within federally designated health professional shortage areas or medically underserved areas, and 10 slots available for non-designated areas each year. Physicians are required to be licensed in the State of Vermont and have an employment contract in place before an eligible facility can request a waiver on behalf of the physician. The physician must assume employment on a full-time basis within 90 days of the approval of the waiver by INS. The facility is required to accept patients regardless of ability to pay, offer a sliding fee scale, and must show documentation that the physician will work with underserved patients.

The Vermont Office of Rural Health manages J-1 Visa Waiver applications but does not maintain a list of vacancies for J1 Visa physicians or provide placement services. The State office refers physicians to the New Hampshire-Vermont Recruitment Center, a Service of Bi-State Primary Care Association, as a point of contact for the recruitment of primary care providers and specialists in Vermont. Bi-State's Recruitment Center tracks vacancies in Vermont and maintains a listing of current opportunities here on the 3RNET website.
