Visas for Temporary Employment
While there are many different visa categories that allow employment in the United States, few law firms invest time to tailor a customized strategy to account for each employer’s needs or each employee’s skills. This cookie-cutter approach to immigration law fails to recognize that the needs of a large multinational employer are often different than those of emerging, small, or even medium sized businesses.
At Goel & Anderson, we have vast experience working with employers of all sizes, and we regularly assist businesses that range from startup ventures to established conglomerates in a wide range of industries. This breadth of experience allows us to customize strategies that take your business practices and needs into account.
Our services include assisting clients with:
- Proactive case management to assist companies and recruiters in hiring temporary foreign workers for highly specialized occupations, or others where unique talent or needed skill sets are hard to find;
- Intracompany transfers, where the right person for the job already works in your international organization;
- Starting or investing in new business ventures, opening offices abroad, or expanding into emerging markets;
- Designing international training and employee rotation programs;
- Managing visa processes for business travel involving short-term international meetings and assignments.
Whether your needs are temporary, or whether a temporary visa represents the best path to bridge the period leading to U.S. permanent residence for one or even hundreds of employees, Goel & Anderson listens and develops sophisticated, comprehensive solutions for companies, individual employees, and their family members.
There are several visa classifications that authorize temporary employment for a wide range of workers. Below are details about several of the most common temporary employment visa classifications, such as:
