A work visa is a type of non-immigrant visa which allows an individual to live and work within the United States for a period of time. If you desire to immigrate, you should apply for an immigrant visa or a dual intent visa, which allows you to apply for permanent residency as well as a work visa. There are many types of work visas available within the U.S., but all of them are employer-sponsored. This means that an employer must first file an application with the government and request the particular work visa for an individual. We welcome you to speak to a Miami Work Visa Lawyer at Pozo Goldstein, LLP by calling us at 305-856-0400.
Once the employer’s application is approved, you are eligible to apply for a work visa. This first approval of your employer’s application is not a visa itself, but it does allow you to continue the work visa application process. A U.S. embassy or consulate in your country will interview you to determine your eligibility for a work visa. If this visa is granted, you may then travel to the U.S. and request permission to enter the country.
