GET TO KNOW THE AMERICAN VISAS THAT ALLOW YOU TO BRING FOREIGN PROFESSIONALS TO WORK TEMPORARILY IN THE UNITED STATES
The United States offers different non-immigrant visas for those who wish to work temporarily in the country. Each of these visas has its own rules and criteria for approval, based on the specific purpose of the work that the beneficiary intends to perform in America.

It is important to note that temporary work visas can be renewed, but none of them grant the right to permanent immigration or permanent residence in the U.S., and the beneficiary is subject to the time allowed to stay in the country and the rules established by the U.S. authorities.
THESE ARE THE MOST REQUESTED TEMPORARY WORK VISAS FOR PROFESSIONALS HIRED OR TRANSFERRED TO COMPANIES IN THE USA
H-1B (SKILLED WORKERS – SPECIALISTS)
Work visas are designed for workers with high technical qualifications in their fields. Besides being an expert in the field, the applicant will need a sponsor in the United States to act as a petitioner for the visa. The H-1B process begins in the United States through a petition, which details to the U.S. government the reasons why that specific vacancy should be filled temporarily by the foreign worker rather than a local worker.
H-2B (SEASONAL WORKERS IN NEEDED AREAS)
This visa is required to perform work of a temporary or seasonal nature in which there is a labor shortage among U.S. citizens and legal residents. Before submitting the petition to the USCIS, the employer is required to obtain from the Department of Labor a certificate confirming that there are no U.S. qualified workers for the positions on which the petition is based.
H-3B (EMPLOYEES UNDERGOING TRAINING)
The H-3 visa is intended for a professional who will travel to the United States to receive training from the employer in any field other than graduate or academic training. The training cannot be used to provide productive employment and cannot be available in the applicant’s home country. The employer must submit a petition to the USCIS to get approval for the training.
I (PRESS PROFESSIONALS)
I visas are intended for press or media professionals. To be eligible for these visas, professionals must have an employment contract or similar document issued by a company justifying the need for their duties while traveling to the United States. This visa is usually used by reporters and other media professionals to cover events for foreign media.
L-1 (INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF MANAGERS AND EXECUTIVES)
The L-1A nonimmigrant classification enables a U.S. employer to transfer an executive or manager from one of its affiliated foreign offices to one of its offices in the United States. This classification also enables a foreign company that does not yet have an affiliated U.S. office to send an executive or manager to the United States with the purpose of establishing one.
O VISAS (INDIVIDUALS WITH EXCEPTIONAL ABILITIES FOR TEMPORARY TRAVEL)
The O nonimmigrant visa is for the individual who possesses extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements. The beneficiary must have a U.S. petitioning company and an employment contract detailing the terms of employment or event itinerary.
P (PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES OR ARTISTS)
P visas are intended for athletes to join a professional team in the United States and engage in professional competitions. The coaches of these athletes are also eligible for the same classification. The P visa can also be used by artists who intend to travel to the US for performances, recordings, or other types of recordings of their art. The P visa must be applied for by a US petitioning company or agent, who must detail the terms of work or event itinerary.
IMMIGRATION VISAS FOR FOREIGN WORKERS
The U.S. offers a green card to professionals qualified for their careers, investment, or permanent job offer in the country.
E.B.” (Employment-Based) visas are part of a category created by U.S. immigration to allow specific immigrants to become permanent residents in the United States (green card holders) based on career, education, employment, skilled work, or investment criteria.

The EB1 is a visa intended for people who have demonstrated “extraordinary abilities” in the fields of arts, sciences, education, business, and athletics and who are nationally, or even internationally, recognized for their professional contributions. Many doctors, dentists, scientists, artists, business people, educators, and athletes are eligible for this category as long as they can meet the requirements of the USCIS.

In this category, the applicant needs to prove that he or she has an outstanding work background and, in many cases, a higher education degree. Foreigners who come to the United States with EB-2 visas collaborate directly with the American labor market, which experiences a shortage of professionals in areas of national importance. Engineers, doctors, dentists, nurses, physiotherapists, IT professionals, airline pilots, architects, among others, may be eligible for this category. Entrepreneurs who wish to expand their business into the U.S. may also be eligible.

The EB-3 is aimed at specifically skilled workers with at least 2 years of experience or training, professionals whose work in the U.S. requires at least a U.S. bachelor’s degree or equivalent education in another country, or some other less frequent categories of workers. In this type of immigration petition, the applicant will have to receive a genuine job offer from an employer in the United States and go through a procedure with the US Department of Labor to obtain a labor certificate.

EB-4 Visa is intended for specific “special” immigrants, including religious workers, members of diplomatic entities and certain international organizations, members of the armed forces, U.S. government employees working abroad, and some other specific categories.

EB-5, also known as the “investor visa,” can be granted to foreigners who wish to undertake business in the United States. Besides a minimum investment which amount will be determined according to the location in which the applicant plans to invest, it is necessary to prove that the business created will generate jobs and move the American economy. EB-5 initially grants a temporary green card and later a permanent green card if the holder can demonstrate that his or her U.S. enterprise remains operational and profitable.
