Business Visas: The Fundamentals

For companies looking for business visas, the United States immigration program provides several kinds of work visas to fit the requirements of companies and workers alike.

Nevertheless, when employing foreign nationals, it is crucial that companies and staff members have a clear understanding of the visa program and its procedure.

Here Are A Few Of The Most Typical Business Visas In The United States:

H-1B Visa

The H-1B visa is a short-term work visa that is used by foreign nationals with a higher degree and an expertise in a specific field, such as engineering or information technology. By law, only 85,000 H-1B visas can be issued every year.

O-1 Visa

The O-1 visa is only for those with above average capabilities. These people are generally professional athletes or artists, but businesspeople, journalists and other professionals can apply as well. The candidate must display evidence of extraordinary capabilities through awards or publicity for their accomplishments.

L-1A Visa

The L-1A visa is for companies who have to move a supervisor, executive or specialized worker from a foreign company to a U.S. branch. The staff member needs to be with the business for one year.

TN Visa

The TN visa is a work visa developed through NAFTA for Mexican and Canadian employees. It is restricted to specific kinds of positions. It is a more expeditious procedure and is a lower cost option.

EB-5 Visa

The EB-5 visa is a program that supplies long-term U.S. residency based upon the requirements that the candidate make a financial investment in a company of at least $1,000,000 ($500,000 for rural locations) and develop a minimum of 10 American jobs.
