Employment-Based Visa Categories: Find What Fits Your Skills

The U.S. offers a range of employment-based visa categories to accommodate professionals, skilled workers, investors, and more. Each category serves a unique purpose and has specific eligibility criteria. Here are some of the main employment-based visa categories:

  • H-1B Visa: Designed for professionals in specialty occupations, it allows skilled individuals to work temporarily in the U.S. and is often pursued by tech professionals, engineers, and healthcare workers.

  • L-1 Visa: Ideal for intracompany transferees, it enables multinational companies to transfer key employees to their U.S. offices, fostering international business operations.

  • EB-5 Visa: For investors looking to create jobs and invest a significant amount of capital in a new commercial enterprise, the EB-5 program offers a pathway to lawful permanent residency.

  • O-1 Visa: For individuals with extraordinary ability or achievement in fields such as science, arts, education, business, or athletics, it is highly sought after by top-tier professionals.

  • TN Visa: Under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), it permits Canadian and Mexican citizens to work in the U.S. in specific professional occupations.

  • E-2 Visa: Investors from treaty countries can use it to develop and manage businesses in the U.S. This visa is suitable for entrepreneurs and small business owners.

These are just a few of the employment-based visa options available. The right choice depends on your qualifications, job offer, and career goals. Our San Diego work-based immigration lawyers can assess your situation and guide you toward the most suitable employment-based visa category.
