If you only intend to be in the U.S. for a limited time, a temporary work visa might be right for you. These are nonimmigrant visas that are not intended to lead to a green card (“lawful permanent residence”). Because these visas are not a path to a more permanent immigration status, they are not appropriate for all immigrants. Temporary visas are often used for investors, agricultural workers, traveling nurses, media personnel, professional athletes, and others who will only need to be in the U.S. for a short term.
Many immigrants seek a work visa that will allow them to transition to a more permanent immigration status. These permanent work visas are intended to lead to green cards and citizenship. Because of this, there is more demand for permanent work visas than temporary visas, and applicants are divided into five preference categories. Our experienced immigration lawyers can help you find the highest preference category possible in order to help you achieve a green card or citizenship as soon as possible.
Students have their own separate category under immigration law. This can cause confusion: after all, some students work as part of their education, and it is important to be sure that your visa allows for this before you begin your academic program. Exchange visitors face the same complications with their limited visas. Consult with an immigration lawyer before applying for any visa in these special categories.
In some cases, a work matter in the U.S. can be resolved in a few short days or weeks. The worker might not even need a temporary work visa in these circumstances. A temporary business visitor visa allows the bearer to complete work matters in the U.S. These are often used for conferences, meetings, symposiums, and similar events that have a definite end date. A temporary business visa is often easier to obtain than a temporary work visa because it is valid for a shorter period. Ask our business visa lawyers if this option is right for you.
