The U.S. immigration system has many different types of business and employment-based visas for those who are looking to live and work in the country. These include, but are not limited to, the following.
The H1B is a temporary visa that allows a worker to enter the U.S. temporarily to work in a specialty occupation or as someone who has distinguished merit and ability. It is the most popular visa for those wishing to work in the United States.
L1 is also a temporary visa. It allows an employee of an international company to transfer their job from one foreign country branch to another branch in the U.S., often with the same employer or parent company.
The O1 visa is for people with extraordinary abilities in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics.
The TN visa is for people who have earned a master’s or higher degree in any field at a U.S.-accredited institution of higher education and possess the necessary skills to perform the job they are seeking inside the United States.
Green Card Lottery Visa
The green card lottery is a government program that randomly selects people from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States. The person selected will then have the opportunity to apply for a green card, which grants permanent residency in the U.S.
