Immigration Attorneys Salida

Immigration lawyers represent businesses and individuals in front of the US Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Board of Immigration Appeals, and in federal courts on issues related to immigration, visas, green cards, changes of status, asylum, citizenship, and other immigration and naturalization matters. Business immigration lawyers assist companies in moving employees from the US to foreign offices or from foreign countries to US offices. 

Visas to Enter the United States

There are four primary types of visas for entering the United States. 

Tourist and Visitor Visas

Tourist visas are for fun; they allow you to enter the United States for tourism and pleasure. You cannot work on a tourist visa, and it is of relatively short duration. 

One form of tourism that is not permitted is birth tourism. Birth tourism involves a visit to the US by a late-term pregnant woman in hopes that she will give birth while in the US. If she does, her child will be a natural-born citizen capable of chain immigration for the child’s family. 

You can use a tourist visa for:

  • Tourism and Vacations
  • Visit with friends or relatives
  • Medical treatment or surgery
  • Participation in social events hosted by fraternal, social, or service organizations
  • Participation by amateurs in musical, sporting, or similar events or contests, if the individual is not getting paid for participating
  • Enrollment in a short course of study, not for credit toward a degree 

Immigration & Naturalization Visas

The United States issues immigration and naturalization visas to those planning to stay in the US for an extended period or permanently. Visas relating to marrying a US citizen or resident fall under immigration and naturalization visas. The most well-known of these visas is the green card, a permanent resident visa that the holder must renew every ten years. Also included here are spousal and finance visas to bring in a foreign national spouse or a fiancé to get married.

Student Visas

Student visas are for those studying abroad or wishing to study in the US. Generally, an immigration lawyer will help an international student obtain a visa to study in the US. There are two types of student visas, and the nature of the student’s studies will determine which they need. You cannot be a student on a tourist visa or under the visa waiver program. 

Business & Work Visas

Business and work visas, which can be either immigrant or non-immigrant, are for individuals wishing to come to the US to work. This work often includes working with the companies bringing over the workers. 

A business visitor’s visa allows an individual to work or consult with colleagues and negotiate contracts and other business issues. Attendees of professional, scientific, or business conferences may also do so on a business vis. Finally, an individual needing to enter the US to settle an estate will do so on a business visitor’s visa.
