New Jersey Q-1 Visa Lawyer
Obtaining a Visa for Cultural Exchange Visitors
A Q-1 Visa requires several application steps both on the part of the applicant
and the prospective employer. As a
New Jersey immigration attorney at The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C., I can guide you through
the procedure so that you can temporarily work in the United States fulfilling
the cultural aspects of the employment.
Q-1 Visa Application Steps
The prospective employer must file a Form I – 129 Petition which
shows the cultural aspect of the temporary employment. The applicant must
be 18 years or older and capable of handling the work requirements necessary.
Once this is approved, the applicant must complete two separate applications
and be interviewed in the U.S. Consulate office or Embassy located in
the country where the applicant resides.
The applicant must show proof of residency in that country and that there
is every intention to return to that country. The duration of this
employment visa is no longer than 15 months.
