Nonimmigrant Visa Options
B Visas. The B-1 visa is a temporary visa designed for foreign workers traveling to the United States for business purposes. B-1 visa holders cannot legally work in the United States and must show that they intend to return to their home country after their authorized stay expires.
H-1B visas. The H-1B visa is for skilled workers in specialty occupations who typically have a bachelor’s degree in a given field or equivalent experience. These visas are valid for up to three years and can be renewed after that time period for a maximum of six years. Each year, 65,000 H-1B visas are issued with an additional 20,000 offered to those with advanced degrees from US colleges and universities. This year, President Donald Trump has declared that changes are underway in the H-1B program and which include the possibility that workers enrolled in the program will be allowed to become US citizens.
K Visas. The K-1 visa allows the fiancé(e) of a US citizen to enter the country for up to 90 days to get married.
Or visas. O-1 visas are for those with extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, education, business, and athletics. To be considered a person of extraordinary ability, you must have been nationally or internationally acclaimed in your field or, if working in motion pictures or television productions, you must have a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement. O-1 visas can only be granted on the basis of individual qualifications. The maximum initial amount of stay authorized on an initial O visa is technically three years. However, the duration of the status is determined by the time necessary for the alien to perform their duties or activities with the applicant employer.
TN visas. TN visas are for citizens of Canada and Mexico who may qualify for this visa if they wish to work in the United States in specific professions on a temporary basis.
