There are several temporary employment visas which could be filed by an employer to hire a foreign employee.  Some of the most common ones include:


H-1B Specialty Occupation Visa


This visa is for professionals coming to the United States to work in specialty occupations.  This visa is usually granted for three years, and an extension for three years might be obtained after the expiry of first three years.  Further extension is available if the employer has started the Legal Permenant Residence or "Green Card" application process for the employee. 


L-1 Intracompany Transferee


L-1 Intracompany transferee visa allows a U.S. employer to recruit foreign employees who are in the U.S. employer's foreign affiliated offices.  These employees must be in a managerial or executive position, or have specialized knowledge such that they are required in the U.S. office of the employer.  The duration for these visas depends on several criterias such as the nature of the position and the country of the foreign employee.  





E-Visas are work visas which are based on a special agreement or a treaty between the U.S. and the country in which an alien is located.  The work purpose under these agreements of treaties could include trade (E-1 Treaty Trade Visa), investment (E-2 Treaty Investor) or in the case of Australia, special occupation workers (E-3).


TN NAFTA Professionals


A TN visa is a temporary work visa designed for Canadian and Mexican professionals who wish to come to the U.S. to engage in professional business activities. 


O-1 Visa


O-1 visa is for individuals who possess "extraordinary ability" in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who have demonstrated extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and have been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements.  Our attorneys have tremendous experience with O visas and are available to assist you in meeting complicated requirements of this visa.
