We find the most effective immigration solutions for U.S. employers and high-skilled foreign nationals.
There are numerous temporary and permanent U.S. employment visas which allow talented foreign nationals to work in the U.S. and provide options for U.S. employers seeking to expand their international workforce.
Temporary Nonimmigrant Visas
There are many nonimmigrant visa categories which have different requirements, timelines, and benefits. We work with the U.S. employer and foreign national beneficiary to choose the most appropriate visa category and cost-effective approach.
Temporary employment visa options include:
- E visas for business investors, entrepreneurs, traders, and their employees
- E-3 visas for professional workers from Australia.
- H-1B visas for specialty occupation workers.
- H-1B1 visas for certain professional workers from Singapore and Chile.
- J visas for exchange visitors.
- L-1 visas for intracompany transferees, including managers, executives, and specialized knowledge workers.
- O visas for extraordinarily talented individuals in science, the arts, business, or athletics.
- P visas for performing artists and athletes.
- TN visas for certain professional workers from Canada and Mexico.
Permanent Immigrant Visas
Applying for an employment based green card is a complicated process. We provide thoughtful solutions which are tailored to the needs of the petitioning U.S. employer and foreign national beneficiary.
Permanent immigrant visa (Green Card) options which do not require employment sponsorship include:
- EB-1A green cards for extraordinarily talented individuals in science, the arts, business, or athletics.
- EB-1B green cards for outstanding researchers and professors.
- EB-1C green cards for multinational executives and managers.
- EB-2 NIW green cards for individuals with exceptional ability and an endeavor in the national interest.
Most employment-based green card applications require the U.S. employer to test the U.S. labor market prior to filing an immigration application to sponsor a foreign worker. The “PERM” process involves employer advertising, recruitment steps, and a formal application with the U.S. Department of Labor. Our detail-oriented approach and helps U.S. employers navigate the complicated labor certification process.
