Trupiano is an experienced, reputable immigration law attorney in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her extensive knowledge in U.S. immigration laws enables her to provide effective legal counsel to foreign nationals seeking temporary employment in the U.S. and U.S. companies seeking to petition a foreign national for a business or employment-based non-immigrant visa.

Types of Non-Immigrant Visas Available to Foreign Workers

There are many classifications of business and employment non-immigrant visas available to foreign nationals who wish to work temporarily in the U.S. based upon the worker’s intent and type of work that will be performed. Examples of these employment based non-immigrant visas include:

  • H-1B work visas: Temporary work visas for workers in a specialty occupation possessing a high level of knowledge or expertise in a specific field
  • H-2 visas: H-2A non-immigrant work visas for seasonal agricultural workers and H-2B non-immigrant visas for other seasonal workers, such as restaurant workers, amusement park workers, resort workers and other temporary workers
  • L-1 visas: Temporary business or employment visas for intracompany transfers of managers, executives or other workers with specialized knowledge
  • Other business or employment-based non-immigrant visas: including B-1 visas for business travel; E-2 visas for entrepreneur investors; P visas for athletes, artists, entertainers; and other non-immigrant employment visas

Temporary Residency Requirements

With the exception of the H-1B specialty worker visa and L-1 intracompany employee transfer visa, non-immigrant visas require the petitioner to have the intent to return to their home country at the completion of their visa term. In order to prove intent, visa applicants must demonstrate ties outside of the U.S. which they do not intend to abandon.
