Hello everyone. I'm a Nigerian physiotherapist and I want to work in the US. So far, the process has been very frustrating. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about it. I would also like to get more information on good recruitment agencies or any employers who can help me out with work visa. Since I'm currently based in Nigeria, I'm also wondering how to go about writing the npte exam which is being held in the US. Thanks for all ur help!

HI ADA, YOU WOULD HAVE TO complete a type 1 fccpt evaluation and when you complete that you can look for an employer that may invite you while you study for the NPTE or better still you can study for the NPTE and come to the US on tourist visa to do the exam. what school did you graduate from and what year? liquid@uymail.com

Hi, I am a graduated PT from Brazil , I am an American permanent resident for 3 years and I am still working on this type 1 FCCPT process and it really is frustrating. I will shortly be moving forward to do the NPTE test ,since I know that is my next step but I can't wait to get a job or learn how to speed up this long process . Does anyone can help me with some more information?

My boyfriend is a German physiotherapist with an equivalent of an associates degree in Germany. We would like to move back to the US together but am unsure if he can practice as a physical therapist.

Does anyone know how long it will take until he can get a work visa or how difficult the process will be?
