Non-Immigrant Employment-Based Visas

Employment-based visas that allow a foreign national to work temporarily in the U.S. are considered non-immigrant visas. There are a variety of temporary employment-based visas that you can apply for depending on your circumstances.

Some of the many non-immigrant employment-based visas we can help you apply for include:

  • H-1B: For certain highly skilled individuals in specialty occupations
  • H-2A: For temporary agricultural workers
  • H-2B: For temporary, seasonal, non-agricultural workers
  • L-1: For intra-company transfers
  • O-1: For individuals with “extraordinary ability”

Permanent Employment-Based Visas

Lawful permanent residents are allowed to work and live in the U.S. permanently. You may seek a permanent employment-based visa whether or not you already have a temporary employment-based visa. Every fiscal year, there are approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas available.

The five categories of this kind of visa include:

  • EB-1: For individuals with extraordinary ability; recognized professors and researchers; and multinational managers and executives
  • EB-2: For individuals who hold an advanced degree
  • EB-3: For professionals and skilled workers
  • EB-4: For “special immigrants” including certain religious workers, those who work in U.S. foreign service posts, retired employees of international organizations, and other specialty classes
  • EB-5: For business investors who $1 million (or $500,000 in certain cases) in a commercial enterprise that employs at least 10 U.S. workers on a full-time basis
