Employment immigration: These jobs might be options for you

On Behalf of | Dec 10, 2019 | Employment Immigration |

There are numerous reasons tens of thousands of people want to immigrate to Florida to work and live. Employment immigration policies allow men and women who qualify to apply for visas through prospective employers. U.S. employers are obligated to make sure they are hiring eligible workers who are in no way prohibited from entering the United States.

A large percentage of the U.S. service and hospitality industries are comprised of immigrant workers. From concierges and bellhops to janitors, maids and chauffeurs, many foreign nationals get their starts in America by securing these types of employment positions. A prospective employer must fill out certain forms and file a petition on behalf of an individual who wishes to enter the U.S. under an employment immigration visa status.

Those who have specialized skills, such as scientists, athletes, artists and academic professors often have a good chance of entering the United States by way of the employment immigration system, providing they continue to work in their specialized fields once they arrive. There are several categories of workers, including professional, skilled or unskilled. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services must approve a petition before an employment visa application proceeds beyond its beginning phase.

Any number of legal issues may arise to delay an application or prevent someone from being eligible to enter the country under an employment immigration status. In fact, such problems can also arise even after a person has transferred to the United States and started working for a particular company. This is one of many reasons it pays to stay closely connected with an attorney who is well-versed in U.S. immigration law issues. Relying on experienced legal representation is typically a key factor toward finding positive solutions to even the most complex immigration problems.
