Immigration Information For Organizations
Businesses and nonprofit organizations alike often benefit from bringing workers, clergy members and volunteers from overseas to help them realize their goals. There are many options available from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), but the process can be complex and inefficient for an organization without legal experience with immigration matters of this kind. If bringing someone to the U.S. from abroad is important to your organization’s success, it is critical to work with a legal team that can help you through the process.
