Our experienced United States immigration professionals partner with you to develop immigration strategies that help you meet inbound immigration needs and manage your regional or global immigration program.

The U.S. immigration system has two principal categories of foreign nationals: nonimmigrants who enter the U.S. temporarily; and immigrants who intend to obtain permanent residence. There are several distinct employment-based nonimmigrant and immigrant categories.

Most foreign nationals require a B-1 visa for business visits to the U.S. B-1 visa beneficiaries are generally admitted for a period suitable for their intended activities; generally, 180 days or less. In the current enforcement climate, the longer the stay (more than two weeks in some cases), the higher the likelihood of scrutiny from the authorities. Certain nationalities are eligible for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), which permits visa-free business visits of up to 90 days.

There are several employment-based nonimmigrant visa categories in the U.S. The most common are the H-1B (specialty occupation), L-1 (intracompany transferee), O-1 (extraordinary ability), TN (Canadian or Mexican professional worker), E-1/E-2 (treaty traders/investors), and E-3 (Australian specialty occupation). The J-1 visa category can be employment-based but also involves a cultural exchange component.​

Though it is not possible to detail every immigration procedure and obligation, foreign nationals should be aware of some general guidelines for international travel, each of which is discussed in more detail here.
