H-1B Visas: Gaining Work Privileges
Daytona Beach Immigration Attorney
Visas are a valuable option for those that are not originally from the U.S.
and have not gained standing as a legal citizen. For many that come to
visit or stay, without the privileges of a citizen there are numerous
things they are unable to do legally. Some choose to pursue naturalization
to become a citizen so they can gain a number of these privileges, while
others look to other means known as visas. There are different types of
visas that are useful to those in various situations. One privilege that
many immigrants to the states seek is the right to take up employment.
Countless people flock to the country each year with the hope in mind
that they can obtain a job they may not have been able to at home. Others
may have a specialized trait and an opportunity to use it in the states.
In any situation it is recommended to speak with a
Daytona Beach immigration lawyer from Buckmaster & Ellzey.
Employers Seeking H-1B Visas in Florida
For those looking to work in the U.S. an H-1B visa is known as a non-immigrant
temporary work visa that allows the individual to stay in the states for
a limited period of time while they carry out their job. It is typically
for those that are specialized in a specific area of work that are granted
H-1B visas. The visa is actually sought by an employer that is looking
to have foreign nationals work for them in a specialty occupation such
as engineering, medicine, law or other important fields. Both workers
and students can be sought through this avenue. If a visa is granted to
an employer, their worker is eligible to remain in the states to carry
out the job for up to three years, after which they can seek an extension
to remain for an additional three years.
The family of the individual with the H-1B visa may also be granted the
ability to stay in the country for the length of time the job lasts. If
however, they wish to work while here, they will need to seek their own
visa. There is a cap placed on the amount of visas that are given out
each year so it is important that you have a professional assisting you
to ensure you carry out the process in a way that gives you the best possible
chance of receiving one. Our firm is well acquainted with the procedures
of seeking a visa and has aided many to successfully gain the privileges
