Assisting U.S. Companies Obtain the Necessary Visas for Foreign Workers

There is often the need for employers to hire employees from foreign countries to fill certain positions. In order to do so, employers must sponsor the proper visas for the employees to enter, live, and work in the United States lawfully. Sponsoring visas for employees can be a complex process that often involves many different entities, including the United States Department of Labor (DOL), the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), United States consulates in foreign nations, as well as the United States Custom and Border Patrol (CBP).

To ensure that you properly obtain the necessary employer-sponsored visas you need for your company to thrive, seek the help of an experienced immigration lawyer at Farmer, Farmer & Brown Law Firm right away.

H-2A Visas

Many agricultural enterprises have difficulty finding workers in the United States who can fill the needs of their workload. As seasonal or peak workload times approach, these operations often wish to hire foreign workers to achieve their goals. Such employers can seek to sponsor workers for H-2A visas, which apply to temporary nonimmigrant agricultural workers. The process involves applying for Temporary Labor Certification with the Department of Labor, as well as petitioning for DOL-approved visas to the USCIS. The workers must then get their visas approved by the appropriate consulate before they can work in the U.S. for the specified period of time.

H-2B Visas

This is another type of temporary nonimmigrant visa for foreign workers who are outside of the agricultural industry. Employers must follow similar procedures as for the H-2A visa, including demonstrating that there are not enough U.S. workers who are ready, willing, and able to fill the positions.

H-1B Visas

This visa is appropriate when employers want qualified foreign nationals to work in the U.S. in specialty occupations, as government-contracted researchers or developers, or as fashion models. This process requires an employer to prove that the position qualifies under the law, as well as demonstrating that the visa applicant is qualified for the position.
