Immigrants Seeking Employment Visas

Employment visas are incredibly important for those looking to immigrate to and work within the United States. An employer can sponsor a foreign worker and help them obtain this visa, which is valid as long as they hold an applicable position. Many immigrants also use work visas as their first step toward a new life, moving on to become permanent residents with green cards and then as naturalized citizens.

I am attorney Ashley Deadwyler-Heuman, and I can guide you through this important and complex process. I have years of experience working with both employees and Georgia employers, helping ensure that they have the proper paperwork in place. Let me make the process easier so that you can start your journey.

What Are The Types Of Employment Visas?

When it comes to employment visas, there are a few different types a Macon attorney will consider. The main five categories are as follows:

  1. EB-1: This visa is used for individuals who have an “extraordinary ability” in athletics, sciences, business and other areas.
  2. EB-2: This visa is for individuals who have advanced professional or science degrees.
  3. EB-3: This visa can be used by skilled workers who want to use these skills in the United States.
  4. EB-4: This visa is for “special immigrants.” These could be retired employees, for instance, or religious workers.
  5. EB-5: This visa is used with investors who want to run a business in the U.S. They have to invest at least $1.8 million to be eligible. There are some targeted areas in which an investment of $900,000 may be enough to be eligible. The business that they start also has to provide at least 10 full-time jobs.

Some employees may technically qualify for multiple visas, while other employees may only meet the criteria for one specific type. Either way, I can use my experience as a lawyer to help you determine what visa you need to use and what steps to take to secure it.
