There are many who do not want to immigrate to the United States but have reasons to visit temporarily. The most common non-immigrant visas issued are for tourists, for students, and for business purposes. There are also other non-immigrant visas that serve other purposes which vary from artists performing at concerts to executives and managers being transferred by their company to the U.S. to open a branch office.
Typically, tourist and business visas are straightforward and not complicated. But, all other non-immigrant visas require analysis and understanding of the regulations by an experienced immigration attorney. If you or your company would like to explore opportunities of expanding your market into the U.S. or have a business venture or wish to perform your art or sport then a Los Angeles immigration lawyer from our firm can assist you.
At the Law Offices of Henry Haddad, we can help you to determine whether this avenue is right for you and which visa may be most appropriate. We are committed to helping you get through the lengthy process of applying for a visa with the end goal being a successful outcome.
Most individuals prepare their own non-immigrant visa application, usually for a B-1/B-2 visa (tourist or business visit) and have no problems. For those who want a student visa (F-1 or M-1) those require a school, university, college or institution to issue an I-20 form to start the process. The most challenging non-immigrant visas are those for L-1, O-1, P-1 and H1-B. The requirements may be onerous but the immigration service (USCIS) approves a large number every year. The most favored by foreign companies is the L-1 visa because it allows for the transfer of an executive or manager, as well as a highly skilled employee to be transferred to the U.S. either to oversee the opening of a branch office or to work in the existing affiliated company. Contact our office and request a free L-1 Guide which will give you an overview of all the requirements.
