The most common type of visa that allows people to legally work in the United States is the H1-B visa, which is for specialty occupations. For example, if a company wants to hire a foreign worker to fill a position in a field which matches the worker’s degree (e.g. engineering or accounting), then they might use the H1-B visa for this purpose. Every year, the number of H1-B applicants outnumbers the available visas. In light of this, the process has been changed for 2020 to allow companies to apply for registration in March instead of having to wait until April 1 to file directly for an H1-B visa. If selected after applying for registration, then a company will file for the H1-B visa the following month.

The second most common type of visa that allows people to legally work in the United States is the H2-B visa. This visa is a general work visa that can be used for many types of work. These types of visas can take a long time to obtain and usually last seasonally or for a couple of years. If a company wants to obtain an H2-B visa, they must get a temporary labor certification to show that there are no Americans who can fill the position. Once that certification has been obtained, the company can apply for the visa through USCIS.

The third most common type of visa that allows people to legally work in the United States is the H2-A agriculture visa. Agricultural workers are usually seasonal, and there is a limited number of these visas each year.

What Is The EB-5 Green Card?

The EB-5 green card provides investors with a way to obtain a green card by investing in their own business or in a program that requires multiple investors. Recently, the minimum dollar amounts were changed from $500,000 and $1 million to $900,000 and $1.8 million. To meet the requirement for the $900,000 card, it has to go through a regional center or a high unemployment area. For the $1.8 million card, a company owner must invest that amount into their own business and have a certain number of employees. If a company owner obtains their green card through these means, then their spouse and minor children will be eligible for the green card.

What Is The Direct Investment Of The EB-5 Program?

The direct investment of the EB-5 program means putting money directly into some type of business that’s going to meet the minimum dollar amount requirement.
