Common Questions About U.S. Immigration

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about professional and investment immigration to the United States, along with detailed answers to help you navigate the process.

What is an O1 visa and who qualifies for it?

The O1 visa is for individuals with extraordinary ability or achievement in their field. This includes arts, sciences, education, business, or athletics. Applicants must demonstrate sustained national or international acclaim.

What is the EB2 NIW visa?

The EB2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) visa is for individuals with exceptional ability or those who hold an advanced degree. It allows applicants to request a waiver of the job offer requirement if their work is in the national interest of the United States.

How can I qualify for an investor visa?

To qualify for an investor visa, such as the E2 or EB5, applicants must invest a substantial amount of capital in a U.S. business. The specific requirements vary depending on the visa type, including the amount of investment and job creation criteria.

What are the requirements for a student visa?

Student visas, such as the F1 visa, require applicants to be enrolled in an accredited U.S. educational institution. They must also demonstrate sufficient financial resources to cover their studies and prove their intent to return to their home country after completing their education.

What is labor certification and why is it important?

Labor certification is a process where the U.S. employer must prove that there are no qualified U.S. workers available for the position they are offering to a foreign worker. It is a prerequisite for certain employment-based green cards.

How can I adjust my status through marriage?

Adjustment of status through marriage involves applying for a green card based on marriage to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The process includes submitting forms, attending an interview, and providing evidence of a bona fide marriage.

What documents are needed for a visa application?

The required documents for a visa application vary by visa type but generally include a valid passport, completed application forms, photographs, and supporting documents such as proof of qualifications, financial resources, and intent to return to the home country.

Can I work while on a student visa?

Students on an F1 visa are allowed to work on-campus for up to 20 hours per week during the academic term and full-time during breaks. Off-campus employment is restricted and requires authorization from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

How long does the visa application process take?

The processing time for visa applications varies depending on the visa type and individual circumstances. It can range from a few weeks to several months. It is advisable to start the application process well in advance of your intended travel date.
