Frequently Asked


  • Tell me about your agency!

    • Interstaff has placed international nurses in US hospitals since 1998. The Processing Officers at Interstaff assist nurses with their US Registered Nurse process from start to finish. You may immigrate to the US with a spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21. We handle their immigration process as well, and you all receive green cards/U.S. permanent residency.

    • We offer a free, three-month NCLEX review and cover the NCLEX registration fee and your State Board application fee. Also, qualified nurses receive an NCLEX travel reimbursement once they return from sitting the exam. Additionally, we cover your flight to the US when you're ready to relocate, offer a relocation payment, and cover the first full month of your housing.
    We provide more details in the interview. In the meantime, you may apply here. Feel free to visit our YouTube page to learn about our process, staff, and nurse testimonials. You can also visit our Facebook page to remain updated with our program.

  • What are the main requirements?

    Applicants must be a Registered Nurse (both BSN and Nursing Diploma accepted), work full-time in an acute care inpatient hospital with 100 or more beds, have one year of current bedside experience, have an active nursing license and an updated CV, and speak strong English. We do NOT require applicants to pass the NCLEX or IELTS before applying to our agency.

  • Do you hire any other positions besides Registered Nurses?

    Our program is only for Registered Nurses. We do not have openings for any other professions within the medical field.

  • What does the application process entail and how long does it take?

    The very first step is a general application to see if you're a Registered Nurse and if you're currently working in an approved hospital. The second step is to complete a pre-qualification form where we simply ask for your credentials (CV & nursing license). Lastly, applicants schedule an interview with one of our Clinical team members. The timeframe can be anywhere between two weeks to one month. The total time depends on how long you take to complete each step and our interview availability.

  • Do you require applicants to pass the NCLEX and/or IELTS before applying?

    No—passing these exams is not a prerequisite for our program. We offer a free, three-month NCLEX review to help prepare for the exam and the IELTS is taken right before filing for immigration.

  • Do you charge a fee to use your services?

    We do not! Nurses will incur a few costs throughout the process (CES Report fee, IELTS fee, etc.), but we do not charge a processing fee. We also don't do any paycheck withholdings.

  • What does your program offer?

    We provide you with a dedicated agent who assists you with the entire process from start to finish, we offer permanent U.S. residency (EB-3 Visa), we take care of all your Visa application costs, there aren't any processing fees or paycheck withholdings, your first month of housing is covered, and you receive a relocation reimbursement upon arrival in the U.S.

  • How long is the EB3 process from start to finish?

    NCLEX and IELTS passers experience a timeframe of 12-16 months. Non-NCLEX and non-IELTS passers experience an approximate 22-28 months timeframe. There are many steps to complete, including the CGFNS process, NCLEX review, testing for the NCLEX, studying for and testing for the IELTS, and more.

  • Can my family immigrate to the U.S. with me?

    Of course! Your spouse and any unmarried children under the age of 21 may relocate alongside you to the U.S. Interstaff even handles their immigration process. You will just be responsible for their Visa fees (Interstaff covers yours).
