To work in the U.S. temporarily, foreign citizens must obtain an appropriate employment visa, based on the employment purpose. It is not allowed to work on a visitor or business visa, or under the visa waiver program. Each employment visa type has its own specific eligibility and filing requirements. However, because all work visas are based on a specific offer of employment, each visa requires the USCIS first approve a petition of a prospective employer before the foreign employee can apply for a work visa.
Majority of temporary employment visas are in the H status category:
Some temporary worker visa categories require a prospective employer to obtain a labor certification or other approval from the Department of Labor before filing the petition, which requires both substantive legal knowledge and practical experience. At Handy Legal Services, we can guide you through a complicated work visa application process, including meeting the pre-application requirements, extension of stay, or change of status and save you a lot of time and money.
