The Nebraska State 30 J-1 Visa Waiver Program is a voluntary program administered within the Office of Rural Health. The program was created by federal legislation in 1994. The program is intended to help provide federal shortage areas with physician services where U.S. trained physicians will not locate.

Communities may submit applications which meet the Nebraska State 30 J-1 waiver guidelines. The applications are reviewed by the Office of Rural Health, and then are sponsored or denied by the Health and Human Services Chief Medical Officer.

The review and sponsorship decision by the State of Nebraska is determined within two weeks and the review and approval process by the Department of State and Citizenship and Immigration Service takes approximately four months.
