US government has called on nurses and doctors around the world interested in working in America to put in for its work visas at the nearest US Embassy to them.

In a statement on Friday, the US authorities called on foreign medical professionals already in the country to get in touch with their sponsors to extend their programmes as part of its plans to increase the number of health workers combating the coronavirus pandemic.

The statement reads, “We encourage medical professionals seeking to work in the United States on a work or exchange visitor particularly those working to treat or mitigate the effects of COVID-19, to reach out to the nearest embassy or consulate to request a visa appointment.

“For those foreign medical professionals already in the United States: J-1 Alien Physicians (medical residents) may consult with their programme sponsor, ECFMG, to extend their programmes in the United States.

“Generally, a J-1 program for a foreign medical resident can be extended one year at a time for up to seven years.”

The country has had over 63,000 infected cases of COVID-19 with death toll nearing 900.
