Types of Business-Based Visas
We assist with employment-based petitions that involve
H1 workers are foreign professionals with specialized knowledge in a particular industry or discipline. They must have at least a four-year degree or equivalent training for this visa.
An L1 visa is for intra-company transferees, including managers, executives and their support staff.
An E visa is for a trader or an investor who enters the United States (under the provisions of a treaty agreement) to create a particular business or to direct the operations of an existing business or enterprise.
This visa is for artists and sports figures. Prima ballerinas, foreign athletes, and international entertainers enter the U.S. under an O visa.
The R visa is for religious workers.
A TN visa is similar to an H1, but applies to professionals from Canada and Mexico covered under NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). Obtaining this visa is an expedited process that can often occur right at the border.
Remember, these visas are NOT green cards. They are non-immigrant, short-term visas. You only obtain legal permanent residence after you adjust your status. However, they allow the visa holder to reside in the United States for a set number of years, and may be renewed while the visa holder is in the country.
