Nonimmigrant Visas Overview
There are numerous nonimmigrant visa classifications available to foreign nationals to conduct business and work in the U.S. Among the most common, the H-1B is designated for temporary workers in “specialty occupations” and is available to most U.S. employers. The B-1 allows foreign nationals to come to the U.S. to attend business meetings, consultations and other activities not involving productive employment. The L-1A and L-1B classifications are available to employees of multinational companies being transferred from a parent, affiliate, subsidiary or branch office abroad to a related U.S. employer on a temporary basis.
