The H-1B visa is geared towards foreign nationals who possess at least a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university and plan on working in the U.S. in a specialty occupation. This visa classification allows a foreign national to work in the United States for a maximum of six years, issued in increments of up to three years by the USCIS. Dependent spouses and children may not work, but are allowed to study.
The L-1 visa category is typically used for the transfer of certain employees within multinational companies to the U.S. This category permits a U.S. company to temporarily transfer these employees from an affiliated foreign company. The employee may be transferred to an Executive/Managerial position (L-1A) or to a Specialized Knowledge position (L-1B) to qualify for this classification.
The R-1 visa is reserved for foreign nationals who are coming to the United States to work for a non-profit religious organization in the United States (or an organization which is affiliated with the religious denomination in the United States) to work as a minister or in a religious vocation or occupation.
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) created special economic and trade relationships for the United States, Canada and Mexico. The TN category is a unique visa option for citizens of Canada and Mexico who wish to work in the United States. There is no numerical limit or cap on the number of TN visas that may be issued. This category is for professionals, who are offered employment in a specific occupation listed in NAFTA.
