Nonimmigrant visas provide a way for people to come to the United States on a temporary basis. These visas are typically based on a person’s employment or student status. Some options for coming to the U.S. temporarily include H-1B visas for professionals in specialty occupations, L-1s for intra-company transferees, O-1 visas for individuals of extraordinary ability, R-1 visas for religious workers and many more.
Those who wish to remain in the country permanently must seek permanent residence. Often, this involves coming to the country on a temporary visa and then adjusting one’s status to live permanently in the United States. Permanent residence may often be established through family-based petitions or employment-based petitions. Whatever your immigration needs, our lawyers will work with you individually to help you find the most effective, efficient solutions. Learn more about options to pursue permanent residence.
Academics, Researchers And Physicians
Professors, physicians, researchers and other professionals have a range of options to come to the United States, including:
- EB-1 visas for professors and researchers
- Labor certifications and national interest waivers
- Special handling labor certification
- Opportunities for individuals of extraordinary ability
- Waivers of the two-year home residency requirement (J-1 Waivers)
There are a host of other approaches and court proceedings that can be used to facilitate immigration for an individual. These include DACA, waivers, removal defense, asylum and many more. Each approach has its own challenges and benefits — and the best way to determine the right path for you or your loved one is to discuss your options with a knowledgeable immigration attorney.
