The interim rule established the procedure under which a physician may obtain a waiver of the job offer requirement that applies to alien beneficiaries of second preference employment-based immigrant visa petitions if the physician is willing to practice full-time in an area designated by the Secretary of Health and Human Services as having a shortage of health care professionals, or in a facility operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs.


The interim rule is effective October 6, 2000.
