Permanent Worker Visas
Each year the U.S. government distributes approximately 140,000 immigrant visas to non-U.S. citizens who are seeking to immigrate based on their job skills. For individuals who have the right combination of education, skills, work experience, these visas give them the right to live permanently in the U.S. There are a total of five employee-based visa preferences or categories.
The Five Employee-Based Visa Categories Are:
First preference EB-1: For those who have an extraordinary ability, be it outstanding achievement as a professor or researcher, or establishment as a multinational manager or executive
Second preference EB-2: For those who have an advanced degree, exceptional ability, or national interest waiver
Third preference EB-3: For those who are skilled workers, professionals, unskilled (or other) workers
Fourth preference EB-4: For those who are “special immigrants” such as religious workers, broadcasters, Armed Forces members, certain physicians, and more
Firth preference EB-5: For those involved in the immigrant investor program
Temporary Worker Visas
If you are unable to obtain a permanent work visa but would like to come to the United States to work temporarily, you may be able to obtain a temporary, nonimmigrant worker visa. Typically, in order to obtain this type of visa your prospective employer must file a petition on your behalf with USCIS. This visa type has variety of classifications.
