H-1B Specialty Occupation Worker Visas
This is the most common type of work visa used by employers in the United
States. This visa allows employers to hire foreign professionals in key
industries for a temporary period of time. The requirements to obtain
this type of visa are fairly substantial and require the individual to
have at least a bachelor's degree or foreign equivalent. These visas
are usually valid for six years and may be renewed in certain circumstances.
L-1 Intra-Company Transferee Visa
The L-1 visa can be used by foreign citizens who work abroad for one year
continuously and occupy an executive, managerial, or specialized knowledge
role. This visa may be used to transfer to a similar occupational role
in the United States within the same company or organization. This visa
also provides privileges for spouses and children under 21 who accompany
the visa holder.
Temporary vs. Permanent Visas
The visa categories for temporary and permanent work employment are different.
Because of this, it is important for individuals to apply for the visa
that best suits their travel and work needs. Each visa serves a different
function that may allow certain actions while prohibiting others. To help
ensure that you apply for the visa that suits your specific needs, contact
our firm and discuss your situation with our New Jersey immigration lawyer.
