Understanding Temporary Worker Visas

Temporary worker visas are for individuals who intend to work in the United States for a fixed period before returning home. The prospective employer must initiate the process by filing a petition with the U.S. government on behalf of the potential employee. This step is crucial and must be done correctly to facilitate a smooth visa application process later on.

Examples of the various types of U.S. work visas include the following:

  • H-1B specialty occupations: Those in highly specialized fields requiring at least a bachelor's degree.
  • H-1B1 free trade agreement professional: Designed for professionals from Chile and Singapore.
  • H-2A temporary agricultural worker: Allows U.S. employers to bring foreign nationals to fill temporary agricultural jobs.
  • H-2B temporary non-agricultural worker: For non-agricultural positions that are seasonal or temporary.
  • H-3 trainee or special education visitor: For trainees in any field except medicine, academia, or those participating in special education exchange visitor programs.
  • L intracompany transferee: Employees of multinational companies transferring to a U.S. branch.
  • O extraordinary ability or achievement: For individuals with extraordinary abilities or achievements in the sciences, arts, business, or athletics.
  • P-1 individual athlete or athletic team: Athletes or teams recognized internationally who wish to perform at a specific event.
  • P-2 and P-3 artist or entertainer: For persons providing support services to artists or entertainers. 
  • Q-1 international cultural exchange program participant: For those participating in international cultural exchange programs.

Determining which visa category fits your situation can be intricate. An immigration lawyer can assess your case and guide you on the appropriate visa to apply for.

Special Requirements for Temporary Worker Visas

Obtaining a temporary worker visa may involve meeting specific requirements. For instance, certain visa categories necessitate the prospective employer to gain a Department of Labor certification, confirming the need for foreign workers. Furthermore, some visas have annual caps, which can impact the timing and strategy of filing petitions. Sometimes, employers must file a petition, which must be approved before the individual starts the visa application.

We are ready to assist prospective employers and employees in understanding and fulfilling their obligations for obtaining approvals and visas and navigating through the complex paths of immigration law together.

Steps in Applying for a Temporary Worker Visa

An approved petition is the first critical step towards obtaining a temporary worker visa but does not single-handedly guarantee visa issuance. The individual must complete the Nonimmigrant Visa Application, Form DS-160, and submit a photograph. Those aged 14 or over are required to attend an interview. 

Additionally, applicants should be prepared to present various pieces of supporting documentation, such as:

  • A valid passport
  • The receipt number from the approved petition
  • Payment receipt for the visa application fee
  • Evidence of compelling ties to their home country, helping to demonstrate their nonimmigrant intent
