Working in the U.S. (General Information)

How do I work in the U.S.?

There is a great deal of information about working in the United States available at the State Department’s Travel.State.gov website http://travel.state.gov/visa/temp/types/types_1275.html

If you want to work in the U.S. temporarily as a nonimmigrant, under U.S. immigration law, you need a specific visa based on the type of work you will be doing. Most temporary worker categories require that the applicant's prospective employer or agent to file a petition which must be approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) before you can apply for a visa. To learn about petitions and more, see Temporary Workers and Employers-Hiring a Foreign National for Short-Term Employment on the USCIS website.
