The USCIS issues nonimmigrant business-based visas to individuals who need to reside in the United States on a temporary basis due to employment. Nonimmigrant visas are initially awarded for up to three years and may be extended for one additional three-year period. Nonimmigrant employment visas are only valid as long as the worker retains employment by the sponsoring company.
When an investor meets specific requirements to start or operate a business in the U.S., which will employ a specified number of American workers, the USCIS may approve a visa granting permanent residency. The investor must be a legal resident of a country with which the U.S. is a recognized trading partner.
Other Types Of Business And Employment Visas
The USCIS makes visas available for a variety of other temporary purposes, as well. Some examples include:
Visas for doctors, nurses and medical professionals
L-1 visas for companies transferring skilled technicians and management professionals
J-1 Exchange Visitor visas for foreign workers coming to the U.S. for extended training
O-visas for individuals with extraordinary skill and knowledge
