In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I am joined by Anthony Pawelski, senior international advisor at Mass General Brigham, A Boston-based nonprofit hospital that consists of 16 entities including Harvard and Tufts affiliated teaching hospitals. In his role there, Anthony prepares E-1, H1-B, O-1, TN, and a variety of non-immigrant work visa applications for folks in the ecosystem and he consults with departments for possible Green Card sponsorships.
In this episode, we specifically take a deep dive into understanding the J-1 visa – what it is, how it works, who qualifies, and what happens after you’ve got one. Anthony is a true expert who has seen immigration law and these types of visas from many sides.
