The Main Types of U.S. Work Visas

While there are many types of work visas, we will focus on some of the most commonly requested here.

Temporary Non-Immigrant Visas

  • H-1B visa – For professionals in a specialized field with an existing job offer.
  • L-1 visa – Includes employees working at a high level for a global company. The visa provides temporary relocation to the U.S. branch of the company.
  •  R visa – For religious workers, such as a rabbi, minister or choir director, who are taking up a temporary role in the country.

Permanent Visas

Workers with a high level of education, knowledge or experience may be eligible for permanent residence. With only a limited number of green cards being given out to individuals, their spouses and children each year, getting help from a family immigration law firm is quite important.

While priority is given to individuals with extraordinary ability, it is still possible for competent workers in some sectors to receive permanent employment-based visas. Both skilled and unskilled laborers with job offers and those working in roles within the national interests of the U.S. may be eligible for green cards.

Common Questions About Employment Visas

Yes. A B-1 visa grants temporary eligibility to conduct business in the United States. This type of visa usually lasts for up to six months.

All family members must individually apply for a visa. We can guide you through this process to prevent any disruption.

While most visas require a job offer from a U.S. business, there are visas for individuals investing substantial sums in the country, and for people with exceptional achievements.
