Temporary Work Visas in Central Florida

Federal immigration laws provide temporary work visas for foreign nationals who wish to work in the U.S. for a short time. These visas are considered "non-immigrant" visas because they are not necessarily intended to provide a path to permanent resident status (Green Cards) or U.S. citizenship. Attorney William Vasquez and his team can help you obtain any type of non-immigrant work visa, including:

  • H Visas: H visas are used by American companies looking to hire foreign nationals or students for jobs that entail particular skills, experience, or knowledge.
  • L Visas: Sometimes called Intracompany Transfers, L visas allow international companies to bring their existing foreign employees to work in the United States.
  • E Visas: E visas facilitate trade between the United States and nations with whom the U.S. maintains commerce agreements. Business traders and investors can obtain E visas to conduct business within the U.S. subject to the terms of the trade agreement between the U.S. and the person's home country.

Immigrant Visas and Green Cards for Foreign Workers

Every year, the United States government offers a certain quantity of employment-based visas (EB visas) that allow workers to remain and work in the U.S. permanently. In most cases, EB visas are given to those with specialized skills or whose work is deemed valuable to the United States. A preference system has been established for processing immigrant work visa applications:

  • EB-1: Applicants with extraordinary talents or abilities, including Nobel Prize winners, prestigious educators, and executives of multinational companies, receive first preference.
  • EB-2: Applicants with advanced academic degrees receive second preference.
  • EB-3: Applicants who are skilled or professional workers receive third preference.
  • EB-4: Applicants who are religious workers, certain physicians, or current and former U.S. government employees receive fourth preference.
  • EB-5: Applicants who plan to start businesses that would create employment opportunities for U.S. citizens receive fifth preference.
