We Help With Employment-Based Nonimmigrant Visas in Both Common and Uncommon Situations

The most common employment-based visas we work with include:

  • H-1B visa – Specialty Occupation
  • E-1 visa – Treaty Trader
  • E-2 visa – Treaty Investor
  • L-1A and L-1B visa – Intra-company transferee

However, with more than 25 years of experience helping people and companies with work visas, we have handled virtually every type of nonimmigrant visa:

  • A-1 visa (ambassadors, ministers, diplomats and consular officers)
  • B-1 visa (business visitors)
  • B-2 visa (tourists)
  • F-1 visa (academic or language students)
  • H-2A visa (agricultural workers)
  • H-2B visa (seasonal workers or trainers)
  • H-3 visa (trainees coming for on-the-job training)
  • I visa (representatives of the foreign news media)
  • J-1 visa (exchange visitors)
  • O-1 visa (persons of extraordinary ability in the arts, athletics, business, education or science)
  • P visa (artists, athletes and entertainment groups)
  • R-1 visa (members of religious organizations)

Is Your Employment-Based Visa About to Expire?

We can help you extend your work visa. You should know, for example, that an H-1B visa is only good for three years, but may be extended for another three years. If you have already used your H-1B visa extension and want to continue working in the U.S., we can help you apply for a green card.
