FAQS for Employers and Employees
We’ve outlined some frequently asked questions with their corresponding answers in regards to business immigration compliance.
- I want to work in the United States. Can I apply for a nonimmigrant temporary work visa on my own or does an American company have to sponsor me?
An American company or training program has to sponsor you. This means that they will submit a petition and application requesting to allow you permission into the United States to work and train with the employer.
- How do I know I need to replace my green card?
If you are a lawful permanent resident, you must replace your green card if it is expired or will expire in the next six months, if it was lost or stolen, if your citizenship status has changed, if you have changed biographic information or if you never received the previous card issued.
- If I have an H1-B visa, how long can I stay and work in the United States?
You can stay and work in the United States for three years with an H1-B visa. In certain instances, you can be granted permission to stay for another three years. After six years, you will be obligated to leave unless you apply for another H1-B visa.
