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.
