Is your temporary visa in order?

If you arrived to begin a new life in Georgia from another country outside the United States, hopefully, you successfully navigated the customs and immigration system throughout the process. You're likely familiar with all sorts of requirements and eligibility rules that govern such matters, meaning, you can't simply show up in America one day and take up residence.

The process of entering the United States to live and work is often complicated and time-consuming. U.S. immigration law is complex and often difficult to understand, especially if you happen to have a language barrier of some sort. When you travel to America, you're required to obtain a non-immigrant visa, which generally allows you temporary legal status to visit, live and/or seek gainful employment here.

Determining which type of temporary visa suits your needs

There isn't a single standard temporary visa issued to all people wishing to travel to the United States. In fact, there are several kinds and which one you need depends on various factors, including what you intend to do while you're here and how long you plan to stay. Following are basic facts regarding temporary visa applications that may prove helpful in your particular situation:

  • The most common types of temporary visas affect the following individuals: students, business people, specialized workers, investors and/or visitors.
  • If you are a foreign government official, you may also be required to obtain a temporary visa before entering the United States.
  • Perhaps you are planning to marry a U.S. citizen in the near future. If your wedding is to take place in the United States, obtaining a temporary visa is a high priority if you hope to avoid complications in travel.
  • Religious work may be calling you to America, in which case there is a particular temporary visa you will need to fulfill the mission.
  • Some people are in extreme dire circumstances and may seek temporary visas as means of gaining protection in the United States.

If you're already in the United States and you're temporary visa has expired, you may run into several obstacles that can place you at risk for immediate removal. Therefore, it's best to seek immediate assistance if you believe your current residency status is unstable.

Many Georgia residents say their stress levels have increased due to fears of targeting by immigration officials since the new presidential administration took office. Whether such fears are fueled by rumors and misguided media information or there is actual cause for concern is highly debatable. However, if any situation arises that causes you or your family members to be afraid that your temporary visa status is threatened in some way, you can turn to an experienced immigration and naturalization attorney for support.
