Getting a work visa in the United States isn’t easy, but you could rely on immigration services Dallas to get a preferred visa; you just need to meet certain requirements for the USCIS. According to uscis.gov, “If you have the right combination of skills, education, and/or work experience and are otherwise eligible, you may be able to live permanently in the United States.” This is no joke—approximately 140,000 of these preferred work visas are given out every year.
Immigration Services Dallas: How it Works
Here are the basic US work visa criteria for these visas:
- Most require that you present a valid job offer from a US employer.
- The employer must receive appropriate certification from the Department of Labor, and the employer will act as your sponsor.
- There must be a shortage of qualified US workers to fill your position.
- Your employment may not adversely affect the wages of US workers.
- You must pay United States taxes while employed in the USA.
These visas’ name betrays the fact that there are different “preference levels.” Some positions, skills, and abilities receive higher priority in the selection process. The following list clears some of the fog regarding preference levels.
First preference: “priority workers” – immigrants with extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics; outstanding professors and researchers, and certain multinational executives and managers.
Second preference: members of the professions holding advanced degrees and “aliens of exceptional ability.” (as opposed to extraordinary ability)
Third preference: skilled workers and professionals [without advanced degrees] and other workers who show their labor is needed in the US
Fourth preference: “special immigrants” who are not exempt from the quota, e.g. religious workers, certain long-term employees of the US government
Fifth preference: “employment creation” – entrepreneurs who invest at least $1 million each (less in specified circumstances) in enterprises that employ at least 10 Americans
