Los Angeles Work & Business Visa Attorneys

Assisting Clients with Temporary Visits & Long-Term Business-Related Immigration

In some cases, foreign nationals wish to enter the United States for a temporary period of time in order to participate in work- or business-related activities. In such instances, they will need to obtain a temporary business visa. In other cases, individuals may wish to enter the U.S. with the intent of eventually obtaining lawful permanent resident status. There are several different visa options, depending on the nature of your visit to the United States.

At Diamante Law Group, we have extensive experience helping both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals with all aspects of immigration law. Our Los Angeles business visa lawyers can help you at each stage of the application process.

Types of U.S. Business Visas

As previously mentioned, there are a number of different types of work- and business-related visas available for those wishing to enter the U.S. for business purposes. When determining which visa applies to your situation, you will need to consider the reason for your visit, as well as the length of time you wish to remain in the U.S.

Some of the more common types of U.S. business visas include:

  • B-1 Temporary Business Visitor: This visa allows you to remain in the U.S. for a period of up to six months. Individuals with a B-1 visa may participate in certain business matters, including attending training sessions and negotiating contracts, but they may not sign contracts while in the U.S.
  • E-1 Treaty Traders and Qualified Employees: This visa allows individuals from certain countries to come to the U.S. for the sole purpose of conducting international trade.
  • E-2 Treaty Investors and Qualified Employees: The E-2 visa allows qualified individuals from certain countries to come to the United States in order to invest a “substantial amount of capital” in a qualified United States company/business.
  • H-1B Non-Immigrant Workers: This is a temporary work visa that allows individuals in certain occupations or who demonstrate special abilities to come to the U.S. and work for a specified period of time.
  • H-2A Seasonal Agricultural and H-2B Temporary Non-Agricultural Workers: The H-2A and H-2B visas allow temporary, non-immigrant workers to enter the U.S. for the purpose of working in agriculture or another specified field.
  • I Foreign Press, Film, Radio, and Foreign Media: The I visa allows journalists, filmmakers, and other individuals involved in the informational media field to enter the U.S. on a temporary basis.
  • L-1A and L-1B Intracompany Transfers: The L-1A visa allows for intracompany transfers of employees in executive/managerial positions, whereas the L-1B visa allows for intracompany transfers of employees who have special skills, knowledge, expertise, etc.
  • O-1 Individuals with Extraordinary Ability: Foreign nationals who demonstrate extraordinary abilities in the areas of art, science, business, athletics, and/or education may obtain an O-1 visa.
  • P-1A, P-1B, and P-3 Internationally Recognized Athletes, Performers, and Artists: The P-1A and P-1B visas permit internationally recognized athletes, performers, entertainers, and artists to enter the U.S. for a specified period of time.
  • Q-1 Individuals Participating in International Exchange Programs: The Q-1 visa allows foreign nationals who are participating in, teaching, leading or otherwise taking part in reciprocal international exchange programs to enter the U.S.
