Employment-Based Nonimmigrant Visa Representation on a National Basis


Thousands of foreign individuals come to work in the United States each year. Those who enter the country for a temporary period of time file nonimmigrant petitions for visas. Which visa you apply for depends on your job’s classification and a number of other factors. Visa categories are broken down alphabetically, from A to V, and each has a different purpose. For example, the children or spouse of a temporary worker may apply for a nonimmigrant visa, but their type of visa would differ from the one obtained by their working family member.
