There are two types of work visas in the United States:
– Permanent (Immigrant) or Temporary (Nonimmigrant)
– Permanent worker (Immigrant)

A permanent worker is a person who is authorized to live and work permanently in the United States. The United States government grants a maximum of 140,000 immigrant visas for foreigners per year. Some immigrant visas require that the worker already have a job offer from a US employer in order to apply and / or an approved labor certification from the US Department of Labor.

Temporary worker (Nonimmigrant)

A temporary worker is a person who wants to enter the United States temporarily for a specific purpose. Once in the United States, temporary workers must limit themselves to the activity or reason for granting them a nonimmigrant visa. Usually, the process must be initiated by the United States employer by petitioning for the temporary worker.

If you want more details about work visas, here is a note with all the details.

Vargas family image

My name is Federico Vargas, proud father of Martina and Benjamin, and husband of Gimena.
With my family we lived the process of emigrating from Argentina to the United States, so we understand the fears and emotions that come into play when taking the step and changing the lifestyle. That is why I am passionate about being an immigration lawyer and helping families go through this process.
