J-1 Waiver Approved for Palestinian National with US Citizen Child


Our client, a Palestinian national and resident of Jordan, came to the U.S. as a foreign medical graduate seeking a medical residency. He was subject to the 212(e) 2-year foreign residency requirement. Attorney Furqan was hired to file a J-1 waiver for him, and he argued that Palestinian nationals in Jordan were denied basic rights such as the right to obtain certain jobs, earn money, or obtain health insurance. USCIS approved the J-1 waiver and our client was allowed to change his status from J-1 to H-1B, and later seek permanent residency.
