6 Types of Employment-Based Visas

Employment covers a wide range of possibilities and U.S. immigration law generally breaks the applications down into six categories…

Specialty Workers

Some applicants will have skillsets in very specialized professions. Engineering and science are two examples and other possibilities from medicine to architecture to law, and beyond. An applicant with this specialized knowledge can seek out an H-1B visa. The applicant coming to the United States on an H-1B can do so with dual intent—that is, they can arrive as a non-immigrant employee, but retain the option to eventually apply for permanent status. 

Intercompany Transfers

Multi-national companies may want to transfer an employee to a United States location from abroad. The legal mechanism that would be used in this situation will be the L-1 visa application. The L-1 is further broken down into “A” and “B” categories. An L-1A application can be used for anyone in a managerial or executive role. The L-1B can be used for anyone with specialized knowledge of their particular employer’s products and processes. 

Investor Visas

The United States government has an interest in encouraging investors to put their money into U.S. based operations. To make this easier for an international investor, the government offers applications for visas based on one’s investment. The E-Visas are what is used for this purpose, either an E-1 or an E-2 depending on the size of the investment. 

Extraordinary Ability

This is similar to the specialized worker application, except it is used in different fields. Extraordinary ability can apply to someone coming to the United States to play sports at either the collegiate or professional level. It can apply to someone working in the arts, from television to film to acting. These circumstances call for an O-1 application. In the event that there is an entourage they rely on, their people can apply with an O-2 application. 

Religious Workers

Many churches and religious organizations send missionaries abroad to do good work and promote their beliefs. They can apply with an R Visa and gain residence in the United States for up to five years. 

Internships & Training

Those in college or just graduating may want to work in the United States to gain a unique type of employment experience. Here we use a J-1 visa application. This can be for as short as a summer in the U.S., or it might be for a multi-year residency program in medicine or a similar field.
