This requires you to go through the process of petitioning for the visa and asking for official permission to work. Most who receive work visas do so because an employer is sponsoring them.

A Clermont immigration lawyer from Bogin, Munns & Munns has extensive experience navigating this process. We handle a wide range of work visa and immigration issues regularly.

Why Is My Work Visa Petition So Important?
A work visa allows eligible workers to live and work legally in the United States, sometimes allowing them a path to naturalization. Many work visas are often non-immigrant, temporary visas only good for a limited time. Other employment visas are also available, allowing you to apply for permanent residency.
In general, having some type of visa is necessary to work in the United States. Without a work visa, you would have to work without documentation and run the risk of deportation. Working “under the table” this way severely limits the industries and earnings available to immigrants.
The best option is often to petition for and obtain a work visa. There are a number of visas available, each with its own conditions, requirements, and rules. Choosing the correct one and completing your petition properly is necessary for the best chance of approval. Our team can help you determine the right category and file your petition according to its requirements.

Types of Work Visas Available for Immigrants
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, our immigration attorneys help clients with any type of work visa. This includes both temporary and permanent visas. In general, obtaining a visa is easier when you have an employer sponsoring you, and you offer skills that are difficult to find in U.S. workers.
Temporary Work Visas
Temporary visas are usually job-based, and there is a time limit for holders remaining in the United States. Some common types of temporary work visas include:
- H-1B Visas: Issued to those with specialty occupations not readily found in the United States
- H-2B Visas: Issued to seasonal, non-agricultural workers
- H-2A Visas: Issued to seasonal agricultural workers from certain countries
- L-1A and L-1B Visas: Issued to employees of foreign companies with significant investments in the United States
We also help clients with other types of temporary work visas. We provide advice and guidance about how each visa works and which one might be best based on your circumstances.
Permanent Employment Visas
Permanent employment visas are for those hoping to move to the United States with no time limit for their stay. This generally requires having an employer who will petition on your behalf. They will need to show that no one in the U.S. could fill the role instead, getting certification from the Department of Labor.
Only once they have this certification can they request permanent worker status for you. It might also be possible to immigrate as a temporary worker and have your employer adjust your status.
These visas could include:
- EB-1 Visas: Issued to those with extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics
- EB-2 Visas: Issued to those holding advanced degrees or with exceptional abilities
- EB-3 Visas: Issued to professionals, skilled workers, and others
- EB-4 Visas: Issued to “special immigrants,” those on a very limited list of unique professions
- EB-5 Visas: Issued to foreign entrepreneurs who invest significant sums in the United States
In addition to filing for our clients’ work visas, we help them complete any additional paperwork to bring their families to the United States. This generally includes their spouse and any children under age 21.
