Secure help when hiring foreign nationals for your business

With the installation of the new presidential administration, immigration has become a hot topic for individuals, news correspondents and businesses that hire foreign nationals. As changes are currently underway and will surely continue in the future, it is more important than ever to obtain legal help when your company is attempting to secure a visa or navigate immigration issues for an employee.

You know what type of employee your New Jersey company needs better than anyone, and, when you work with an experienced immigration attorney, you can more effectively navigate this process. By securing legal assistance, you can reduce confusion and eliminate unnecessary complications or delays.

The types of visas that may be available to potential employees

It is important to know the type of employees that could benefit your business when hiring from abroad. The type of visa that is required for that employee depends on several factors, such as his or her abilities and future role within your company. Employment-based immigrant visas can help your company secure:

  • Individuals of extraordinary ability
  • Professionals with advanced degrees
  • Employment investors
  • Temporary or permanent workers

Securing the right visa can be complex, but it is important for your future success that you do not attempt to navigate the process on your own.

Qualifications for potential employment immigrants

The qualifications and requirements for your potential employee to secure the right visa will depend on whether he or she will be a temporary or permanent employee and other factors. The differences between the two types of employment immigrants include:

  • Temporary or non-immigrant worker: These individuals will only have permission to remain in the United States for a limited amount of time, and they must remain employed in their specified field for the duration of their stay in the U.S.
  • Permanent worker: These individuals may receive authorization to remain in the United States on a permanent basis if certain requirements are met, if there are no eligible candidates from the U.S. available for the job and if it will not adversely affect the wages and opportunities of U.S. workers.

From nurses to scientists, many fields and jobs offer opportunities to employees who reside outside of the United States. Whether you are currently hiring a foreign national or hope to do so in the future, you should take the necessary steps to ensure that you avoid undue legal complications regarding employment-based visas.
