The United States immigration system is a complex web of laws and policies that are ever-changing. You should discuss your specific situation with a business immigration lawyer in Los Angeles, though in the meantime, the following are a few frequently asked questions we hear from clients.
What Types of Visa are Available to Work in the United States?
There are different options for non-immigrants wanting permission to work in the U.S. for a specific period of time. These visas include, among others:
- B-1 Temporary Business Visitor (GB Visa for visitors to Guam)
- WB Temporary Business Visitor under the Visa Waiver Program
- H-1B Professionals
- H-1C Nurses
- H-2A Agricultural Workers
There are also permanent visas available for immigrants coming to work in the U.S., such as:
- EB-1 for people with extraordinary abilities
- EB-2 for professors and researchers
- EB-3 for skilled workers and professionals
- EB-4 for religious workers
- EB-5 for investors
You want to ensure you meet all the qualifications and apply for the right type of visa to ensure you do not lose your work opportunity.
What if My Visa is Denied?
Visas are often denied because an applicant did not properly and fully complete the application or provide the necessary documents. However, they can also be denied because someone was deemed inadmissible to the U.S. In either case, it is important that you seek help from a skilled immigration attorney as soon as possible after a denial.
