Helping Talented Employees Pursue Their Career Goals In The United States
Talented professionals and investors can bring their skills and expertise to the United States for a defined period of time through a temporary visa, a long-term work visa, or permanent residence status.
Unfortunately, obtaining the right to legally work in the United States can sometimes be difficult and confusing. Many employees and businesses choose to work with an experienced business immigration law firm to take the stress and the guesswork out of going through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
The Law Offices of Mary Kennedy can help clients around the globe understand the different work options available to them and obtain their visa in order to accomplish their career goals.
Types Of Work Visas Available
Work visas come in two main categories: temporary employment visas and permanent employment visas. To secure a work visa in most cases, the applicant’s company must sponsor them. The applicant must include their detailed work history in their application and express what they intend to do in the United States.
The majority of individuals who seek entry for a job need only a temporary stay, which can be granted by various temporary employment visas. The most common type of temporary employment visa, an H-IB visa, is reserved for professionals working in a specialty occupation. Visa holders must return to their home country upon the expiration of their visa.
A permanent employment visa never expires, and the holder enjoys greater rights and protections under the law. The holder can bring their spouse and minor children into the country, and should they enjoy making a home in the United States, this visa offers them a path to permanent citizenship. USCIS issues about 140,000 permanent employment visas each year, prioritizing those workers with greater skills and talents. A qualified green card attorney can help applicants determine which of the following five types of permanent employment visas best matches their situation and skills:
- EB-1 – for workers of extraordinary ability, outstanding professors and researchers, and multinational business executives and managers
- EB-2 – for workers with advanced degrees or equivalent in the sciences, arts, or business, or for those who will substantially benefit the US in some way
- EB-3 – for skilled workers and professionals
- EB-5 – for qualified investors who can support US economic growth
Whether you’re participating in a short-term work assignment or pursuing more long-term work through an L-1 visa, H-1B Visa, or any other work visas, business immigration lawyer Mary Kennedy will work with you and your sponsoring employer to determine which visa works best for your situation. Having a well-versed and experienced immigration attorney advocating on your behalf throughout the entire process will give you the best chance of success.
