Virginia also participates in the Appalachian Regional Commission’s (ARC) J-1 Visa Waiver Program. ARC is a federal government agency that considers J-1 Visa Waiver requests by state governors on behalf of medical facilities located in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) in the respective state's Appalachian Region. If the employer is located in an Appalachian region of Virginia, VDH will forward the application for processing by the ARC as an interested government agency.

In an effort to maximize available resources, and improve access to health care for residents of underserved areas, applicants that are eligible for the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) J-1 Visa Waiver program should utilize the ARC J-1 Waiver program. 

In Virginia, there are 25 counties and eight independent cities that are eligible for the ARC J-1 Visa Waiver program. Specialist physicians are NOT eligible for the ARC J-1 Waiver program and should seek a specialist slot through Virginia’s J-1 Visa Waiver program.
