What Kind of Work Visa Do I Need?
To work in the United States as a foreigner, you need a work visa. This is true regardless of whether you’ll be working for a short or long term. There are temporary and permanent kinds of work visas, and our immigration lawyer can determine which kind you’ll need.

- O-1 visa: If you’re a worker with extraordinary abilities
A Permanent Work Visa
With this kind of visa, you’ll be able to work in the U.S. for a longer or indefinite period of time. This kind of visa is an employment-based green card that could lead to permanent residency.
As listed with the USCIS, one of these permanent work visas could apply:
- EB-1 visa: If you’re a priority worker
- EB-2 visa: If you’re a professional with an advanced degree
- EB-3 visa: If you’re a skilled/unskilled/professional worker
