Work Visas (Nonimmigrant)
If you are a foreign national who is job-hunting in the United States, or has received a job offer, chances are that your employer will not be ready or able to sponsor you for a green card right away. Instead, you will likely need to apply for a temporary, nonimmigrant visa. And before you can do that, you will need to make sure that the type of job you have been offered matches up with one of the available U.S. visa types. Here, you can learn more about each type of U.S. work visa.
