Business Immigration

United States immigration law allows people who are needed in the U.S. to be allowed to work here on a permanent or temporary basis. If an individual wants to file for permanent residence, there are five general types of business visas. These types of visas are ranked in priority of need in the U.S. by the economy and employers, as established by Congress. Immigrants with these types of visas would be able to live and work here for as long as they would like so long as they do not commit any deportable offense.

In immigration law, a waiver is a form of pardoning for violating an immigration policy. In some instances, a waiver is granted automatically. In others, immigrants must apply for one. It takes a skilled and experienced immigration attorney to understand the various waivers that exist and how they can apply to specific immigration issues.
