Employment based visas
There are various employment-based visas available for persons desiring to work and reside in the U.S. There are five major employment-based visa preference categories available under current U.S. immigration laws that allow an employer to sponsor an alien worker to meet an employment need. These employment-based preference categories apply to the following:
- Foreign National of Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professors and Researchers, and Multinational Executives and Managers
- Members of the Professions Holding Advanced Degrees or Persons of Exceptional Ability
- Professional, Skilled, and Other Workers
- Certain Special Immigrants
- Persons Who Invest Significant Funds in the U.S. (in either a New Commercial Enterprise or Regional Center) and Create at Least Ten Jobs for U.S. Workers
In addition, various nonimmigrant visas are available for employers wishing to sponsor a foreign worker to meet a temporary employment need. We specialize in handling the following types of nonimmigrant employment visas:
-H-1B (Applies to Persons Belonging to Specialty Occupations)
-L-1 (Intracompany Transferees)
-E-2 (Treaty Investors)
Our firm has eighteen years of experience helping employers effectively and timely prepare employment-based visa petitions for alien beneficiaries who fall under the various employment-based preference categories. We mainly specialize in preparing employment-based petitions requiring foreign labor certifications.
