How can you come to the United States to work permanently?

If you're planning to come to the United States to work, it's important to make sure you have the right work visa. Every fiscal year, there are approximately 140,000 visas available to those from countries outside the United States.

If you have the right education, skills, work experience or meet other requirements, you may be able to come to the United States to work and live permanently.

How can you get a work visa for the United States?

First, you'll need to submit information to your employer for the purpose of an immigration petition. For many visas, you'll already need an offer for a job in the United States from a U.S.-based employer. The employer then has to get approval by showing there are no qualified, willing or available U.S. workers to take the position. Additionally, the employer has to show that hiring a foreign worker won't impact the working conditions or wages of employed U.S. workers.

Normally, visas are reserved for people who have skills needed in the United States. For instance, someone who is exceptional at art or science might be able to obtain a visa easily, while those with mediocre skills in that arena may not find it easy to get a visa to work in the U.S. However, if you can get a job offer, that's a great way to get a step closer to a permanent job and placement in the United States.

Your attorney can help you make sure you do everything necessary to obtain a legal visa. With one, you'll have a right to work in the United States.
