B1/B2 visa issues at Manila Embassy
MU has had several clients inform us that the Manila Embassy has been denying B1/B2 visas to applicants who need the B1/B2 visa in order to come to the US and sit for the National Physical Therapist Exam (NPTE). MU is working with the Department of State in order to try and solve the problem. The problem stems from the Embassy's misinterpretation of the recent Georgia decision and the need for an NPTE in advance of licensure.
If you have had your B1/B2 denied at the Consulate because the officer mistakenly believes that the NPTE is not required for PT licensure please either add your comment to the MU Healthcare Immigration Law blog, our Facebook page, or email Chris Musillo or Cindy Unkenholt.
