Employment Visa Lawyer Avon

Employment Visa Lawyer Avon

A lot of foreign nationals want to go to the U.S. for work. Fortunately, an estimated 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas are available annually for foreign nationals and their kids and spouses who are looking to immigrate to the country. You can reach out to the Joseph & Hall P.C. firm’s skilled employment visa lawyer in Avon to discuss your employment-based immigration options. 

Employment-Based Visa Options

Employment-based visas include five preference categories. The specific visa type for you would be dependent on your particular job skills and the industry that you want to work in. The preference categories are: 

  • EB1 or First Preference: Priority workers that have extraordinary abilities in the fields of sciences, arts, education, athletics, and business, which include outstanding researchers and professors and multinational executives and managers.
  • EB2 or Second Preference: Professionals with exceptional ability or advanced degrees in the fields of business, arts, and sciences.
  • EB3 or Third Preference: Unskilled workers, skilled workers, and professionals with full-time, permanent employment offers.
  • EB4 or Fourth Preference: Special immigrants such as physicians, religious workers, broadcasters, members of armed forces, foreign national minors considered to be a ward of courts in the U.S., retired international organization workers, etc. 
  • EB5 of Fifth Preference: Foreign nationals that contribute significantly to job creation or the economy in the U.S., such as employing 10 or more workers or investing a substantial amount of money.

Take note that EB2 and EB3 categories require labor certification, which means that a U.S. employer must sponsor their employment-based visa. This certification confirms that the specific job you are qualifying for has inadequately qualified workers in the U.S. Likewise, it verifies that hiring a foreign national won’t negatively impact the earnings of U.S. employees in similar job positions. 

For Lawful Non-immigrants Looking for Employment

If you’re in the U.S. as a lawful non-immigrant but do not have the authorization to work, you can consider the following options: 

  • Changing your status to a non-immigrant status that offers employment authorization
  • Apply for adjustment of status and seek lawful permanent residency. You can apply for this option concurrently with a petition for an immigrant visa, or depending on your situation, you might need to have the immigrant visa approved before you apply for adjustment of status. 

How long you’d be allowed to work in the U.S. and the specific conditions you should meet would be dependent on the kind of immigration status that the government will grant you. Most importantly, you should comply with all the terms and conditions of your admission to the U.S. and employment authorization. Otherwise, you could be deported or get banned from re-entering the country.
