There are many options for employment immigration

Living and working in Louisiana might seem like just a dream, but it can be a reality. Employment immigration is a popular way for some workers to come to the United States. However, there is no one-size-fits-all visa that covers all of employment-based immigration. Here are a few options that may apply to various situations.

Employment immigration -- how the H-1B visa is changing

Want to work in the United States? Individuals who hold advanced degrees from institutions in the United States will likely have a leg up when applying for the H-1B visa program. The shifting focus toward individuals with more advanced degrees could change current trends in employment immigration, potentially affecting those who are hoping to travel to Louisiana for work in a specialty occupation.

Employment immigration for businesses

Immigrants are an integral part of the Louisiana economy. Many businesses rely on these workers to fill specific roles within their companies. Without immigrants, some companies would simply not be able to continue operations. Employment immigration may be an ideal option for getting the right people here, but it can be a complicated matter. 

Is employment immigration right for you?

Employment-based immigration is a popular choice for many people hoping to make the United States their permanent home. Although Louisiana is almost certainly always in need of skilled workers, there are a limited number of spaces for this process. Nationwide, only 140,000 people can utilize employment immigration every year, which may leave you understandably worried about your options. 

DHS moves to end international entrepreneur rule

In 2017, an immigration rule was created to allow international entrepreneurs to live and work in the U.S. for up to five years in order to create start-up businesses. Now, that rule appears to be on its way out. The "international entrepreneur rule" was created during the Obama administration but was set to go into effect during the Trump administration. Last year, however, the Department of Homeland Security put the rule on hold while indicating it planned to rescind the rule and prevent the program from going into effect.

Rules tightened for companies sponsoring outsourced H-1B visas

H-1B visas are available for several types of workers, but the most well known is the "specialty occupations" visa. It is available to highly skilled foreign workers who work in jobs which typically cannot be performed by people without at least a bachelor's degree in their field. Examples include engineers, architects, and computer programmers.

Policy change made regarding nonimmigrant work visa renewals

One of the ways a person from another country can get permission to work in America is through being granted a nonimmigrant work visa. These visas allow a person legal status to live and work in the U.S. on a temporary basis. How long the visa lasts depends on the type of work visa it is and the specific terms of the visa.

Pursuing the documents one needs to work in the U.S.

When one of the big goals of a foreign national who has come to the U.S. is to work in the U.S., there are many things it is critical for them to be aware of. One is what the immigration status that they are in the U.S. on means for their work eligibility.
