Learning about the different employment visas can prove to be difficult on your own, especially considering that there are so many. The H1B visa, for example, is offered to foreign or nonimmigrant employees of U.S. companies in temporary positions. The H1B visa is also the most common work visa for which people apply. Alternatively, the H2B visa is for temporary non-agricultural workers. This is not to be confused with the H2A, which is a temporary or seasonal agriculture visa.
There are also visas that are permanent, such as the EB3 visa, for which some foreign professionals are eligible. Such employment visas typically require at least 2 years of experience or schooling in some kind of skilled labor. These visas also require applicants to receive a PERM labor certification, which is the first step in employment-based permanent residency.
These are just a few examples of the many visas that the U.S. offers. This is one reason why it’s a good idea to get trustworthy legal counsel for such issues.
