Immigrant & Nonimmigrant Employment-Based Visas

Every year, thousands of people immigrate to the United States for business or to work for U.S. employers. Employment-based visas are some of the most common nonimmigrant visas available and are a faster means of entering the country than waiting for a green card. In order to obtain a work visa, an immigrant must be entering the U.S. to conduct business, to work for a U.S. employer, to start a new business in the U.S., or for any of a number of other employment-related matters.

Common nonimmigrant work visas include the following classifications:

  • E-1 Treaty Traders
  • E-2 Treaty Investors
  • E-3 Specialty Occupation
  • H-2A Agricultural Workers
  • H-2B Non-Agricultural Workers
  • L-1A Intracompany Transferee Executive or Manager
  • L-1B Intracompany Transferee Specialized Knowledge
  • Q Cultural Exchange
  • R-1 Temporary Religious Workers
  • TN NAFTA Professionals

Common immigrant work visas include the following classifications:

  • EB-1 First Preference - Persons of Extraordinary Ability
  • EB-2 Second Preference - Persons with Advanced Degrees or Exceptional Ability
  • EB-3 Third Preference - Professionals, Skilled Workers, and Other Workers
  • EB-4 Fourth Preference - Special Immigrants
  • EB-5 Fifth Preference - Business Investors

Nonimmigrant visas do not require the sponsorship of a U. S. employer, but many EB visas do. If you are looking to obtain a green card through employment in the U.S., you need a qualified employer to sponsor you and file a Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker.
