We Can Help You Apply for a United States Work Visa
A citizen of a foreign country must typically obtain a temporary visa to enter the United States if they wish to live and work here. The United States offers a number of different temporary visas for this purpose. Each visa category has its own eligibility requirements and requires the immigrant’s prospective employer to file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Some of the temporary visas we assist clients with include:
- L-1 (Intracompany Transferee)
- E-1 & E-2 (Treaty Traders & Investors)
- EB-1A (Extraordinary Ability)
- EB-2 (Employment-Based, Second Preference)
- O-1 (Individual with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement)
- Marriage and Family Visas
- TN NAFTA (Temporary Professionals from Mexico and Canada)
- H1-B (Persons in Specialty Occupations)
- PERM Labor Certifications (Permanent Workers)
Our team can advise you on which visa category is appropriate for your situation and how to go about starting the application process. Keep in mind that many temporary worker visa categories are limited with respect to how many petitions may be approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services each year. These limits and other rules governing immigration to the United States can and do change frequently, which is why it is so important to work with attorneys who specialize in immigration matters.

After applying for a visa, United States law typically requires the applicant to be interviewed by a consular officer at an embassy or consulate in the applicant’s home country. The consular officer’s role is to determine if you are qualified for the particular type of visa you seek. If for any reason you are found ineligible, your visa will be denied. In some cases you may be able to apply for a waiver of that ineligibility, which may still allow you to obtain a visa.
At BBA Immigration, we can walk you through this entire process from start to finish. We understand that dealing with the United States immigration system for the first time can be confusing and even frustrating. That is why we strive to provide all of our clients with skilled, thoughtful representation. Our goal is to help you get to the United States so you can start working in your chosen field.
