6 Types of Employment-Based Visas
There are several different types of work permits, and our Laredo work visa attorneys will advise clients on which authorization is the one they need to pursue. The options can break down broadly into six categories:
Post-Graduate Training Programs
Individuals in college or recently graduated may seek employment experience in the United States through internships or training programs. We can help clients obtain J-1 visas for these purposes, whether for a short-term summer program or a multi-year residency in relevant fields.
Professionals with highly specialized skill sets such as those in engineering and science, as well as fields like medicine, architecture, and law, may be eligible for an H-1B visa. This type of visa allows applicants to work in the United States as non-immigrant employees while retaining the option to apply for permanent status in the future.
The extraordinary ability visa is another option for individuals seeking to work in the United States in specialized fields such as sports or the arts. This type of visa, known as O-1, can be used by collegiate or professional athletes, as well as those working in various facets of the entertainment industry, from television to film and acting. In cases where an entourage is involved, their team members can also apply for O-2 visas.
When multinational companies seek to transfer an employee from abroad to the United States, they may utilize the L-1 visa application. This legal mechanism is separated into two categories, L-1A and L-1B. An L-1A application is appropriate for individuals in managerial or executive roles, while an L-1B application is suitable for employees with specialized knowledge of their employer's products and processes.
Encouraging international investment in U.S.-based operations is a priority for the United States government. To facilitate this process, the government offers visa applications for investors based on their investment amount. The E-Visa program is designed for this purpose, with E-1 visas being appropriate for smaller investments, while E-2 visas are suitable for larger ones.
Church and religious organizations often send missionaries abroad to engage in humanitarian work and promote their beliefs. To facilitate this process, these organizations can apply for R visas, which allow them to gain temporary residence in the United States for up to five years.
