How Do You Obtain an Employment Visa?

An employment visa allows a foreign citizen to come to the United States for a fixed amount of time to live and work. To be eligible, you will need a company to petition and sponsor you with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

It is important to know the requirements for obtaining an employment visa, what the application process entails, and how an immigration attorney may assist.

Qualifying for an Employment Visa

To qualify for an employment visa, you must satisfy certain conditions, including the following:

  • You must have a job offer from a company in the United States related to your profession, and the employer must agree to sponsor your visa.
  • You have to have the required education, training, or experience that qualifies you for the job.
  • You must pass a medical checkup and demonstrate that you are free from any contagious illnesses.
  • You must be able to establish that once your job in the United States ends, you will relocate back to your country.

Steps in Obtaining an Employment Visa

There are a few important steps to complete at the beginning of the employment visa process:

  1. The first step is to gather all of the necessary paperwork. You might include items such as your passport, birth certificate, resumé, and any applicable job experience certifications.
  2. You will then complete and submit the application form for an employee visa together with any necessary documents. Your application may be submitted online or in person.
  3. An immigration official will assess your application, and if it is accepted, you will be issued an employment visa and information on the next steps.

The Benefits of Working with an Immigration Attorney

There are several benefits of working with an immigration attorney when applying for a visa. An experienced immigration attorney knows what information is needed to have your application approved. They will make sure that all required documents are submitted and that your application is filed correctly.

Additionally, applying for a visa can be stressful and overwhelming. Working with an immigration attorney can reduce these stress levels so you can focus on preparing for your upcoming interview. Your immigration attorney can also offer their support and expertise during the interview process.
