Employment-Based Immigration

Pennsylvania Employment Immigration Attorneys

Companies in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States want to build the most talented, capable workforce and management teams possible. As a result, these businesses may choose to bring in workers and managers from other countries. If you are an employer planning to bring in foreign workers, make sure you get advice from an experienced immigration attorney first.

At Prince Law Offices, P.C., we have extensive experience helping Pennsylvania businesses meet their staffing needs through the use of employment visas. Our goal is to help our clients accomplish the business goals by securing the proper visas for employees. We understand how important it is to have the right business team assembled. Our experience in both immigration and corporate law is a valuable tool for our clients.

Pursuing Non-Immigrant Employment Visas

Most companies find non-immigrant visas to be the most useful tools to meet their recruiting needs. Workers who become particularly valuable can later choose to file an immigrant worker petition or adjust status to receive a green card.

There are many categories of employment-based visas that cover workers of different types. Part of our jobs as Pennsylvania employment immigration lawyers is to match the qualifications of potential employees with the requirements of particular visa categories. These categories include:

  • E-1/E-2 visas for treaty traders and investors
  • H-1B visas for professional workers holding at least a bachelor’s degree (or its equivalent work experience) in a specialized field
  • H-2B visas for seasonal workers
  • J-1 and Q-1 visas for exchange visitors such as students, teachers, professors, research scholars, trainees and others
  • L-1 intra-company transfer visas for executives, managers and employees with specialized knowledge who work in a foreign office of a U.S. company
  • O visas for workers with extraordinary ability in arts, science, business or athletics
  • P visas for athletes, artists and entertainers
  • R visas for religious workers
  • TN visas for workers from Canada and Mexico entering under NAFTA

If problems arise in obtaining an employment visa, the usual approach may not work. In such situations, a family-based visa may be available. This is a non-obvious alternative that still meets the needs of the company and the employee. Our Pennsylvania lawyers will explore any and all visa options to meet our clients’ needs.
