Employment-Based Non-Permanent Resident Cases
If your goal is to work in the U.S but only for a limited duration, then non-permanent resident employment-based immigration is likely right for you. This process begins with gaining sponsorship from an employer who can attest to why you should be allowed to temporarily live in the country and work for them. For example, an engineering company can sponsor someone with a specialized engineering degree to help with a specific project that will last several months or years. Our law firm can work with employees who want to be sponsored and employers that want to sponsor someone.
Different visas that might work for your employment-based non-permanent resident case include:
- E-1 or E-2
- L-1A or L-1B
- And more
Tell our attorneys about the reasons why you want to enter the country related to your employment during an initial meeting. We can then decide the right approach or visa for your situation.
Employment-Based Permanent Resident Cases
Are you hoping to enter the country based on your employment but also stay here to start a new life? Employment-based permanent resident status can make that possible. Approximately 140,000 immigrant visas are available each year for permanent resident workers, according to USCIS. As your chosen legal guides, it will be our job to make sure you are eligible to receive one of those visas based on your education, certifications, career path, and so forth.
Most employment-based permanent resident visas will be a:
- EB-1: People with extraordinary abilities in the sciences, arts, business, athletics, or education can qualify for an EB-1 visa for “priority” workers.
- EB-2: If you have an advanced educational degree like a master’s degree earned from a recognized university, you can qualify for an EB-2 visa.
- EB-3: An EB-3 visa is reserved for people with recognized skills in their career field, but who do not necessarily have a related university degree.
- EB-4: “Special immigrants” can use an EB-4 visa for permanent residency in the U.S. based on their work, such as religious or military occupations.
- EB-5: You might be able to use an EB-5 visa if you intend on investing in a commercial enterprise or company with 10 or more U.S. workers.
