What are Work Visas?
Every person who is not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident will need separate authorization from the immigration authorities to work in the country. 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 they do intend to return to their home country or previous country of residence once the 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 that the employee will not be able to switch employers unless he or she has authorization to work for the other company. In addition, many work visas are also job-specific, so any changes 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 advise you on the best ways to meet the goals for your professional team. We always take into account our clients’ short-term and long-term objectives. As mentioned previously, non-immigrant work visas are highly nuanced with very specific provisions. Filing for the wrong visa can jeopardize a foreign national’s eligibility for future immigration status in the U.S. Submitting incomplete applications or filing with errors and inconsistencies may get the application delayed or denied. This can negatively impact your bottom line. Therefore, it’s crucial for you to have an experienced immigration lawyer on your team to create customized immigration solutions to best suit your needs.
