Temporary Skilled Workers

Skilled workers include individuals who are qualified to work in specialty occupations. These workers may qualify for the H-1B visa. Applicants for these visas must perform work that requires a high level of skill.

Most people who apply for this type of visa hold a university degree. However, a visa can be issued to an individual with significant experience in a specialized field, even without a degree.

In order to qualify for this visa, the worker must:

  • Have a job offer from an employer in the United States
  • The job must pay the prevailing wage for that position
  • The applicant must have the right background for the job requirements

The application process requires that the employer determine the prevailing wage for the position. The employer must then file a Labor Condition Attestation with the Department of Labor and the H-1B petition with the USCIS. After the petition is approved, the application must be filed by the employee at the U.S. Consulate.

This type of visa requires a significant amount of preparation and the correct procedures must be followed. Our temporary work visa lawyer in Murrieta can help you complete the process.

Temporary Agricultural & Non-Agricultural Workers

Not all temporary work visas require workers to be highly skilled. There are a number of visas available for "unskilled" workers.

Many workers enter the United States each year on seasonal agricultural workers visas, or H2-A visas. This usually involves farmers hiring workers for the planting, cultivation, and harvest of crops.

The H-2B visa is an option for foreign workers in non-agricultural fields. These are often worker at amusement parks, hotels, resorts, truck drivers, and other jobs.

For either visa, there needs to be a lack of citizens to fill these positions before employers can seek temporary workers. Both visas allow eligible workers to stay in the country for the period of time authorized on the labor certification. This stay can be extended, so long as there is a new temporary labor certification to cover each extension. H-2A and H-2B visa holders can stay for a maximum of three years.

We can help you determine which visa is best for your situation and guide you through the application process. We can also protect you from deportation if you are facing an issue.

We encourage you to call our office at (951) 433-7124 for assistance with your temporary work visa.
