YPC works in collaboration with the Advocacy and Legislative affairs committee to help young physicians with security clearance and visa-related issues. All such requests should be sent to the email@example.com. Please provide the following information when requesting assistance with VISA issues.
Congratulations to all Young Physicians who have matched.
The objective of APPNA Visa Committee is to advise and facilitate the visa procedures for the matched residency applicants.
In order to streamline the process please contact APPNA by the end of May 2016, as this process is convoluted and the authorities have to verify documents in order for visas to be issued.
The current residents and fellows in the USA should be mindful that if they go out of the U.S. to get their visa renewed, the process can take up to 3 weeks or longer (approximately). So this committee can only help once 3 weeks have passed since the application submission.
All proper checks and procedures by the State Department have to be completed and we appreciate their hard work and support of our Young Physicians.
This committee in not mandated to assist or facilitate with B1/ B2 or any other visitor visa category.

The recipient will receive up to US $5,000 to facilitate for USMLE exams, travel for clinical skill testing and interviewing process for the residency programs in the US. Please send the signed Application Form and scanned Required Documents via E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
