What visas are there available for working in the United States?
The U.S has a wealth of career opportunities available for people from all over the world, and many different types of visas will permit you to work in the US. The right visa for you will depend on the type of work you plan to do and how long you plan to be in the US. Whether you plan to invest, start a business, work in a temporary role, or a specialty role there are US visas that could be suitable for you.
The most popular US work visa is the H-1B visa, this is for highly skilled workers who intend to work in specialty roles in the US. Every year, the USCIS accepts a total of 85,000 H-1B visas. To be eligible, you will need to hold a bachelor’s degree or higher and be able to work in specialty roles. Other requirements include:
- Your job must only be able to be performed only by those who hold a higher qualification;
- You must have an unrestricted license that authorizes you to practice your occupation
- If you hold a foreign educational qualification, it has to be the equivalent to a U.S. bachelor or higher degree
You cannot apply directly yourself for a H-1B visa, instead, your employer must submit an I-129 Petition to the USCIS. With H-1B status you will be able to work in the US for up to 3 years, and can extend the visa up to a maximum of 6 years. As a H1-B visa holder, you can also bring family members with you to the US under the H-4 visa. Family members include a spouse, child, or other qualifying family member.
