The US Department of State has issued a statement that all medical professionals, particularly those working to combat Covid-19, should contact their nearest US Embassy to request a visa appointment. If you are a medical professional and have an approved I-129, I-140 or other immigration petition, you should contact the US Embassy or Consulate nearest to you to schedule a visa appointment as soon as possible. Even if the Embassy is currently closed to routine interviews, an interview may be granted for a medical professional.

The medical professional with an approved I-140 must have a current priority date.
