We can help you work or open up your own business in the United States
In order to come to the United States and work, you must be employment immigration sponsored–either by an employer or by opening an business and having your business sponsor you. It’s all about who you know.
Temporary Worker Visas
Temporary worker visas through sponsored employment immigration do not grant permanent residence (like a “green card”), but they can be a path to it. Some work visas allow your employer to eventually sponsor you for permanent residence while others just allow you to remain in the United States legally for a set amount of time. With a temporary work visa, you can also open your own business and be your own boss while having your company serve as your sponsor for employment immigration. Temporary work visas offer real opportunities to take part in the American Dream, but it helps if you know the right people to get you started.
Permanent Worker Visa
Permanent worker visas allow you to live and work in the United States permanently, and your employer can apply for permanent residence status on your behalf. A wide range of individuals working in the United States may be eligible for permanent residency sponsorship through employment immigration. These individuals include those hired by U.S. employers or those already working in their home country and who are relocating to the United States for their company. Some examples of these documents include H-1B and L visas.
Starting Your Own Business
Are you an entrepreneur or investor interested in expanding your reach? Good news: it’s possible to start your own business in the United States and stay permanently. Or perhaps you produce goods in your home country and want to sell them in the United States? Consider the E-1 visa.
