Different Types of Business Visas

There are multiple business visa categories available, each requiring specific documentation and sometimes an interview process. Common types of U.S. business visas include:

  • B-1/B-2 Temporary Visas: These nonimmigrant visas permit short-term business activities like attending conferences, negotiating contracts, or consulting.
  • H-1B Specialty Occupation Visa: This visa allows entry for work that necessitates specialized knowledge, often used by professionals in fields like medicine, law, or engineering.
  • H-2B Seasonal Work Visa: For short-term work that doesn’t qualify for a B-1 visa, the H-2B is common in tourism or hospitality and can last up to a year.
  • E-2 Investor Visa: For investors planning to operate and invest significantly in a U.S. business, the E-2 visa requires substantial capital input and a major role in the business.
  • L-1 Intra-Company Transfer Visa: For employees transferring to a U.S. branch of their company, typically in managerial or executive roles.

While these are some of the more prevalent visas, there are other options for those looking to work in the U.S. Our team can help clarify your choices and find the right fit for your circumstances, assist with the application process, and advise on additional matters like family relocation, visa extensions, or permanent residency.
