Reviewing different types of employment visas

Many immigrants see America as a land of opportunity and look forward to a brighter future once they start working in the country. However, some may have difficulty obtaining a work visa or have uncertainty concerning the immigration process in Miami-Dade, Florida, and throughout the nation. Moreover, it is important for employers to have an understanding of what prospective employees may face with regard to employment immigration and make sure that every base is covered beforehand.

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, workers who enter the country fall under a number of categories. For example, there are permanent workers, who are able to work in the country permanently. On the other hand, there are temporary workers, who are only able to reside in the country for a predetermined time period. Additionally, there are exchange visitors and students, who are sometimes able to find employment.

The Department of State outlines the different employment-based visas that people obtain. Some immigrants obtain employer-sponsored visas, such as a professional who obtains an E-3 or E-W3 visa. Professionals who have exceptional abilities may obtain an E-2 visa, while priority workers are able to secure an E-1 visa.

There are many nonimmigrant work-related visas people obtain as well. For example, a nanny may obtain a B-1 visa, while a highly-skilled worker may work in the country on an H-1B visa. Temporary workers may enter the country with an H-2B or H-1A visa, whereas athletes may come to compete with a B-1 visa and religious workers may have an R visa.
