What are Work Visas?
Every person who is not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States will need separate authorization from the immigration authorities in order to work in the United States. Non-immigrant work visas are meant to grant the applicant a limited amount of time to live and work in the United States. For the majority of work visas, applicants must prove that they have no intention of being in the United States indefinitely and intend on returning to their home country or last country of residence when the work visa expires.
All work visas require employer sponsorship and a petition to be filed with the appropriate government agency. In some cases, multiple government agencies are involved. Each work visa is employer-specific, meaning the employee will not be able to move to another employer unless he or she has authorization to work for the other employer. In addition, many work visas are also job-specific, so any change in the position’s duties will have to be approved by the immigration service.
How our immigration Lawyers Can Help You
Our immigration lawyers will help you prepare for the future and advise you on the best ways to meet your goals for your professional team. We always take into account our clients’ short-term and long-term goals when advising them on their business immigration needs. As mentioned previously, non-immigrant work visas are highly nuanced with very specific provisions. Filing for the wrong visa can greatly impact a foreign national’s eligibility for future immigration status in the U.S. Filing incomplete applications or with errors and inconsistencies will get the application delayed or denied. This can affect your bottom line. Therefore, it is important for you to have a good immigration lawyer on your team that will create customized immigration solutions to best suit your needs.
