United States Work Visas

By The Budris Law Group  Apr. 28, 2011 5:02p

The Unites States welcomes people from foreign nations. Our doors are open to the arts, culture, and foreign technology that our neighbors bring to the U.S. When a citizen of a foreign country seeks to enter into the U.S., in most cases, they must first obtain a U.S. visa. There are certain international travelers who may be allowed to enter the U.S. without a visa, if they meet certain requirements first.

When a person obtains a U.S. visa, they are allowed to travel to an airport or a border crossing and request permission to enter the U.S. by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Depending on your purpose for travel, you will need to obtain either a Nonimmigrant visa or an Immigrant visa.

Nonimmigrant visas are intended for travel in the U.S. for a temporary amount of time, whereas an Immigrant visa is intended for travel to live inside the U.S. permanently. In order for an alien to accept employment inside the United States, they must first acquire appropriate authorization to do so. In many cases, aliens are required to apply individually for employment authorization. If you are looking to obtain a work visa in the United States, you should contact a skilled and knowledgeable Los Angeles immigration attorney for help.

There are many reasons that international travelers may want to work in the United States and there are ways to obtain immigration classification, that will allow you to either work temporarily or permanently in the United States, in most cases, your potential employer, or your employer will be the one that must petition on your behalf.
