A work visa allows individuals—and some family members—to live and work in the United States. Work visas are generally non-immigrant visas, which means your stay is temporary. Immigrant visas could allow you to seek permanent residency instead. Our Ocala immigration lawyer can help you understand the difference, file the correct petition, and obtain the necessary visa.

Understanding Your Options for an Ocala Work Visa
Each category of work visa has different conditions, requirements, time limits, and terms. Choosing the appropriate one is essential to getting approved to work in the United States. While the U.S. government likes workers with certain skills and expertise to come to the United States, they do not make the process easy.
Temporary Work Visas
Temporary permits are generally easier to obtain but come with strict terms for changing jobs, how long you can stay, and more. These work visas include:
- H-1B: Visas for those who work in specialty occupations, sometimes these visas can be a path to permanent residency
- H-2B: Visas for seasonal, non-agricultural workers
- H-2A: Visas for seasonal agricultural workers from certain, pre-approved countries
We also frequently help clients with L-1A and L-1B visas. These visas are for employees of a foreign business that also does work in the United States. When a company needs a particular worker’s skill in a US-based branch of their business, they might apply for one of these work visas on the worker’s behalf.
There are numerous other kinds of temporary work visas available. Our team can assess your needs and recommend them as necessary. We also complete the required paperwork so our clients can bring their spouses and/or any children under age 21 with them when they come to the United States.
Permanent Employment Visas
We help clients obtain a permanent employment visa when this option suits their circumstances. This requires cooperation from their employer, who must take several steps to certify their need with the Department of Labor. The types of visas often used in these circumstances include:
- EB-1: Visas for those with extraordinary abilities, such as scientists, musicians, athletes, researchers, and more
- EB-2: Visas for those who hold advanced degrees or demonstrate exceptional abilities
- EB-3: Visas for unique professionals or skilled workers
- EB-4: Visas for “special immigrants,” including some religious workers, retired nonprofit workers of international organizations, employees of U.S. foreign service posts, and wards of U.S. courts
- EB-5: Visas for foreign entrepreneurs who invest significant money in the United States
Your Employment-Based Visa May Make You Eligible for Naturalization
Not all work visas allow immigrant workers the opportunity to become full US citizens; however, if this is your intent, we can make sure that we file the appropriate application. If you are in the United States for strictly temporary work and give anyone the idea that you wish to stay permanently, you could be at risk for deportation.
Allow our team to explain the differences between temporary and permanent work visas. If you’re looking to become a permanent US citizen, we will keep this in mind from the beginning of the process and avoid any scary hangups.
