How immigrants have shaped American businesses

The United States is a country that has been shaped by immigration for generations. That is still true today. While the topic may be a political hot button in the modern era, it used to be something that the United States relied on to expand the population and to grow into a world power.

Were you scammed by someone offering to help you with a visa?

It's a sad fact that scammers prey mainly on the those whom they perceive to be the most weak and vulnerable. Those seeking asylum, worker visas or United States citizenship may fall into those categories due to their desperation or even the language barrier.

What happens if my employment visa is denied?

Thousands of people come to the United States each year on employment visas. They are sponsored by their employer to attend conferences, training or meetings in the country. Applying for a work visa is pretty straightforward and easy. Most of these visas are approved. But, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) might deny such an application. So, what happens if your employment visa is denied?

Renewing an employment authorization document

Many people in New Orleans came to the United States for a job. You need to apply for an employment-based visa in order to enter the country for work. You also need to be sponsored by your employer in order for the application to be approved.

How to acquire a temporary work visa

If you need to travel to the United States for work, you will be required to acquire a temporary work visa. This is an important legal document that provides you temporary access to the country. That's why you need to apply for the temporary work visa well before you are scheduled to visit New Orleans so you don't wind up missing the project timeframe.

Jobs that require an H-1B visa

Working in the United States as a residence of another country requires documentation. You cannot simply enter the country and expect to be allowed in to work a job, even if it is legitimate employment in New Orleans, Louisiana. Let's take a look at some of the jobs that might require, or have typically required, an H-1B visa in order for the subject to hold employment in the United States.

The H-4 visa could be in jeopardy

If you want to move to the United States for employment reasons, you'll have various options available to you. If you have a graduate degree and you are employed in a specialty occupation that qualifies you, then the H-1B visa could be your best way to enter. The H-1B visa allows you to enter the United States to work in jobs like IT, accounting, finance, engineering, architecture, science, math and medicine.

Indian immigrants: Pathways to naturalization

Statistics show that there were a total of 2.4 million Indian immigrants living in the United States in 2015. Among these immigrants, 45 percent had become naturalized United States citizens. This compares to the figure for foreign-born immigrants, among which 48 percent were naturalized at that time.

The difference between L-1, B-1 and H-1B employment visas

Many United States companies often opt to employ skilled foreigners to fill positions that they're unable to find any adequately trained Americans to fill. The type of work visa that a prospective candidate may qualify for varies depending on how long they're expected to remain in the U.S., what their professional expertise is like and where they're from.
