Employment (Work) Visas

business visas

Work visas for the U.S. are available across many categories, and may be subject to annual quotas and complicated regulations. Many occupations lead to visas quickly due the shortage of skilled workers in the U.S. Others require visas that can take a long time to acquire and may involve several federal agencies in the process. Some employment visas are temporary, some are permanent. Others begin as temporary but allow the individual to pursue permanent residence.

We help individuals and businesses to acquire U.S. employment authorization. Call or email us to find out how we can help you. We are always happy to connect you directly with an experienced employment-based US immigration attorney.

We regularly provide legal assistance for these business visas:

  • B-1: A non-immigrant, temporary visa for those participating in business activities of a commercial or professional nature in the United States.
  • J-1: A non-immigrant visa category for individuals approved to participate in work-and study-based exchange visitor programs.
  • L-1: Business visa so that employees and executives may transfer between branches of an international company.
  • H-1B: Wage-earner visa for individuals within specific industries who wish to work and earn income within the United States.
  • O-1: Extraordinary ability visas for individuals who demonstrate excellence in specific fields or industries.

We provide full service representation for preparing and filing all necessary paperwork in the United States and at the appropriate U.S. Consulate.
