Miami Business Immigration Attorney
A common means of immigrating to the United States is by obtaining a business visa. These visas allow you to remain in the U.S. for education, business, travel, or pleasure purposes, depending on your situation. If you seek residency for professional reasons, you may be granted one of two kinds of business visas by proving to the U.S. Government that you have valuable skills and talents that are needed in the country.
Nonimmigrant Business Visas
These visas are designed for persons seeking temporary residence in the U.S. for educational, professional, or vacation/travel purposes. Such persons include exchange students and teachers, college/university attendees, business visitors, media, journalists, religious workers, physicians, and foreign military stationed in the U.S., among many more. There are almost as many forms as there are types of non-immigrant visas, too, so take the necessary precautions when pursuing a nonimmigrant business visa.

Immigrant Business Visas
There are five main types of immigrant business visas:
- Employment First Preference (E1): Priority Workers
- Persons with extraordinary ability
- Outstanding professors and researchers
- Multinational managers or executives
- Employment Second Preference (E2): Professionals Holding Advanced Degrees and Persons of Exceptional Ability
- Employment Third Preference (E3): Skilled Workers, Professionals, and Unskilled Workers
- Employment Fourth Preference (E4): Certain Special Immigrants
- Employment Fifth Preference (E5): Immigrant Investors
To qualify for any of the above, you must have an employer who has obtained a labor certification approval for you from the Department of Labor, or in the case of an E1, you must file for your own approval. The paperwork for each is detailed and often confusing and you must also be sure that you do not accidentally apply for the incorrect visa. To be sure that no mistakes are made and that you obtain the visa you need in order to remain in the U.S., consult with a Miami immigration attorney today.
