Work Visa Strategies
A work visa is required for individuals from other countries to come to the United States to work. However, the type of visa required varies depending upon the position offered in the United States as well upon the education and work experience of the prospective foreign national employee. Delays in obtaining work visas are common, and denials can be costly.
