Sagar, as per my knowledge on the matter goes, work visa is not based on any State regulations but on Federal regulations. If you get through the Type 1 certification, then you are eligible for a work visa.
State regulations are primarily affecting your State PT licensing possibilities. Now with the NY PT Board following the CWT format too, now most of the states will require 60 general credits. PTs who graduated earlier continues to have thier chance for licensing based on the year they graduated, as long as they would be meeting the general/professional credit limits already established under the CWT.
If you would be meeting the general and professional credit requirements, then most of the US states will be open for you to consider for licensing.

It might possibly give one a chance at a tourist visa, but not sure. I have heard of PTs not getting visitors visa as well as getting it, which to me feels like it might be/might not be a factor.

Hi Sagar, choosing a state for me is more a personal priority based decision. I chose Texas for my License even when Michigan and NY was more accessible and time saving at that time because of personal priorities including family, pay, living cost etc. I'm pretty sure that you too might have your own priorities based on which only you can make a suitable choice. If you find it hard to decide, write down on a paper your top priorities, and on the other end more flexible priorities. Find out those states which would meet the top priorities if not the most of the priorities. It has helped for many, it might help you too.
If you are looking at the ease of licensure requirements excluding credit requirements, then states like NY, NJ, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas etc would be a good choice. If you need more Indian community presence then NY, NJ, Texas, Michigan are the best bet. Other factors would be cost of living, access to higher education, availability of jobs/opportunities, average reimbursement rates etc that u might want to look into.
Some of the recruiters take u to the US on a tourist visa for NPTE, some on H1b itself. You can try for a tourist visa, there would be no problem with that. But that u need to be prepared to bet that money on your ability to get thru the NPTE and your test preparedness.
