FAQ / What kind of information does an organization need to provide to the CIS in order to obtain authorization to issue the certificates?

The instructions to the Form I-905 list the kind of information that must be provided in support of the Form I-905. That information is also contained at 8 CFR 212.15(k). In general, the organization must demonstrate that it meets four guiding principles:

1. The organization is independent and free of material conflicts of interest regarding whether an alien receives a visa;
2. The organization has an ability to evaluate both the foreign credentials appropriate for the profession, and the results of examinations for proficiency in the English language appropriate for the health care field in which the alien will be engaged;
3. The organization can maintain comprehensive and current information on foreign educational institutions, ministries of health, and foreign health care licensing jurisdictions; and
4. If the health care field is one for which a majority of the states require a predictor examination (currently, this is done only for nursing), the organization should demonstrate an ability to conduct the examination outside the United States.
