Work Visas that Can Provide the Workers Your Company Needs to Grow
There are a broad array of work visas available. When considering working and living in the United States on a temporary basis an individual must ensure that the visa not only fits his or her immigration goals but also must verify that he or she is likely to satisfy the requirements set forth to obtain a work visa of this type. Common work visas and their requirements include:
- E-1 Treaty Trader – Individuals whose country of origin is one with which the United States holds a treaty of trade and navigation can apply for an E-1 visa. The E-1 visa permits a person to come to the U.S. for purposes of engaging in substantial trade.
- H-1B Person in Specialty Occupation – The H-1B visa is a well-known pathway for educated, temporary workers. The computing and other high tech industries frequently make use of H-1Bs.
- L Visa for Intracompany Transferee – For foreign companies looking to expand to the United States, an L Visa can permit for managers and executives to come to the U.S. to oversee the expansion.
- O Visa for Individual with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement – Certain individuals with extraordinary abilities or achievements in business, the arts, science, athletics, and other fields may be able to qualify for an O visa.
The visas listed above include only some of the more well-known options. An immigration attorney can assess your business circumstances and goals to help you determine which visas are most likely to assist you in achieving your goal.
Guidance for Family Based Immigration in Miami
If you already have relatives in the United States and are considering making the U.S. your permanent home, family based immigration may be your best option. Individuals who wish to immigrate on the basis of an existing family member can do so through the Immediate Relative or the Family Preference visa process. Generally, individuals who can qualify under the Immediate Relative (IR) program should do so because this program is not subject to limitations on the number of visas that can be issued annually. However, the IRS visa does require an extremely close family relation to already be a citizen. If you cannot qualify for an IR visa, you may still qualify through a family preference category. While these visas are subject to quotas, it is typically easier to qualify for this type of visa.
