RELOCATION TO USA

Visa requirements

Relocation requirements for moving to the USA

Since 9/11 US policy changes have resulted in much more selective immigration regulations, getting a visa to work is now nowhere near as easy as it was. If you want to work in America you can apply for several types of visa:

A H1-B non-immigrant visa is for skilled, educated people working for a sponsoring employer in specific occupations such as maths, engineering, law or medicine.
A H-2B is for temporary non-agricultural workers and is available for foreign workers doing seasonal work where there is a shortage of local workers.
The J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor Program for people looking to study, teach or carry out research in the US.
The green card – this will entitle you to become a permanent resident. You can obtain a green card through a job or job offer, provided there are not enough US workers who can do the job.
