FCCPT reapproved until 2015

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo




The Foreign Credentialing Commission on Physical Therapy (FCCPT) has been re-approved by USCIS to issue Healthcare Worker Certificates for an additional 5 years, through 2015. FCCPT is one of two organizations that are approved to issue Healthcare Worker Certificates for Physical Therapists. The other, CGFNS, issues the Visa Screen as its Healthcare Worker Certificate. FCCPT's Healthcare Worker Certificate is known as the Type I.



The Healthcare Worker Certificate is a prerequisite for all US visas, including the H-1B, TN, and the EB2 and EB3 green cards. Either the FCCPT or the CGFNS is sufficient.

    @Jessica- These approvals are granted on a 5 years basis. FCCPT has been repeatidly approved. Barring some substantial change in policy, I'm sure that they will be approved again.
