Why a U.S. Work Visa is Necessary

Working in the U.S. is a sought-after goal for people from across the globe.  In most cases, foreign nationals wishing to work in the U.S. will be required to apply for a U.S. work visa. There are a number of U.S. work visas available, and applicants must determine for which ones they are eligible, and how to properly apply and prepare documentation.

Which U.S. Work Visa is Right For You?

Any foreign national can apply for a U.S. work visa.  Depending on the kind of work, there are a number of different options for individuals seeking temporary employment in the States.

Some of the U.S. work visa options include:

  • L-1 visa : for foreign workers and owners wishing to transfer to a new or existing U.S. business
  • E2 and E1 visas : for investors and traders.
  • H-1B visas: for specialty occupations
  • H-2B visas: for non-agricultural workers

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has opened the doors for Canadians and Mexicans seeking to enter the U.S markets by providing a “fast track” basis for U.S. visas through the TN visa.

Why Seeking Professional Help is Essential

With so many applicants each year from around the world vying for U.S. Work Permits, it is important to get experienced legal help that will ensure your application package has the best chance at being accepted.  Missed or incorrect details can result in a failed bid, which can be heartbreaking if they could have been easily avoided if prepared by a professional immigration expert.

The stakes are high. If your application is refused, your case will be permanently recorded on the U.S. Immigration database. Therefore it is essential to get it right the first time!
