Wish to Petition for an Employment-Based Visa in Houston?

Immigration Solutions for Businesses

When handling employment-based immigration, it is crucial to have the insight of a knowledgeable Houston immigration lawyer. Visas for those traveling to the United States for long-term work are far more complex than temporary visas. Whether you are an individual hoping to apply for a visa or an organization hiring a foreign national, a skilled attorney from Hira Law PLLC can streamline the legal process by identifying any important factors in your situation and helping you gather the appropriate documentation. Our firm recognizes that no two immigration cases are exactly alike. That's why we provide legal assistance tailored to your needs. Let us help you navigate the employment-based immigration process.

The Employment-Based Immigration Process

Although the employment-based immigration process can vary depending on the type of employment involved and the current immigration status of the employee, most situations will involve the following steps:

  • The employer based in the United States will complete an immigration petition for the potential employee. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has to accept this petition before the process can move forward.
  • The employer then files a labor certification request for the employee.
  • The applicant will then receive an immigrant visa number from the State Department.
  • Next, employees currently residing in the United States should petition for a green card. Employees living outside of the U.S. will begin the visa process once they receive their visa number.

Employment-based immigration visas are divided into five categories, and include individuals with extraordinary abilities, those who are exceptional researchers or business professionals, investors, skilled and unskilled workers, special immigrants (such as religious workers) and U.S. government employees residing abroad. A Houston immigration attorney from our firm can help you identify the appropriate visa for your situation.
